The Music of Strangers (12A)
Dir: Morgan Neville | USA | 2015 | 95 mins
The new documentary by Morgan Neville, Oscar-winning director of 20 Feet from Stardom focuses on the extraordinary musical collective created by celebrated cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
Named for the ancient trade route linking Asia, Africa and Europe, the Silk Road Ensemble was founded in 2000 and features a revolving line-up of performers drawn from over 50 vocalists, instrumentalists, composers, artists and storytellers, who gather in locations across the world to perform and explore the ways in which art can preserve tradition and cultural heritage. Mixing performance footage, interviews and archive film, Neville focuses on the journeys of a small group of performers and their personal stories of talent and sacrifice, painting a vivid portrait of an inspiring musical experiment.
