OutKast’s André Benjamin stars as Jimi Hendrix in "JIMI: All Is By My Side," a revealing new biopic from writer-director John Ridley ("12 Years A Slave") premiering at SXSW on Wednesday, March 12.

Covering a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.

Ridley’s credits also include the feature films "U-Turn," "Three Kings," "Undercover Brother," and "Red Tails."

The cast includes Hayley Atwell, Imogen Poots, Ruth Negga, and Adrian Lester.
