A CONCERTO IS A CONVERSATION
From Executive Producer Ava DuVernay

“An indelible slice of virtuoso filmmaking...The two voices create a wonderful harmony, like one hand tickling the ivories of a keyboard while the other manages the chords. Dazzlingly cut together with a sprightly touch, A Concerto Is a Conversation plays with delicate musicality. It’s a delightful work played with a maestro’s hand.”
- Pat Mullen, POV Magazine
“An endearing and cementing love letter from a grandson to his grandfather that transcends generations, ethnicity and even music. This hit me hard...Sent the tears flowing.”
