November 16 • 6 p.m. • ECC Theatre

In conjunction with the ECC Music Department and International Education Week

About the film: When conductor Gustavo Dudamel’s international tours are disrupted by deadly protests across his native Venezuela, one of the world’s finest and most beloved musicians faces a daunting set of challenges — to his commitment to the mentor who changed his life, to friends and musicians he’s led since his teens, and to his belief in art’s transformative capacity. ¡Viva Maestro!, the uplifting and timely new documentary from acclaimed director Ted Braun, follows Dudamel around the world as he responds to unexpected and imposing obstacles with stirring music-making that celebrates the power of art to renew and unite.

Producer Dean Schramm will join us via Zoom, and John McGrosso (first violinist of the Arianna String Quartet) will join us in person to discuss the film.

The Film and Lecture Series brings acclaimed documentaries and narrative films, scholars, authors, journalists, and poets to campus throughout the year. The series is designed to enhance essential components of education by providing audiences with avenues for exercising critical thought, appreciating various forms of artistic expression, and deepening cultural understanding.
