Co-director Hicks added “The story of him as a man has never been comprehensively told. It was a privilege to have his trust, allowing us to capture intimate moments giving insight into the fabric of the man.”
More recently Quincy Jones has been in the press due to a colorful interview given by Vulture magazine where he offered his opinion on varied topics like his opinion of the JFK assassination to President Trump’s daughter Ivanka.
