Forte is an ensemble cast documentary, directed by David Donnelly (Maestro, 2015), that challenges the popular and perhaps somewhat outdated notions of success in classical music through a fast-pace narrative of three female artists. A young Norwegian violinist on the brink of stardom, a former Russian-born prodigy reinventing her career in the US as she brings music back into schools in underprivileged communities, and a first-generation American from Argentina, whose creative process of composing a film soundtrack is documented and exposed in an unprecedented way. Three different stories, backgrounds, and personalities. One thing in common: strength.
After the screening, Executive Producer Anastasia Boudanoque, along with the members of the Eroica Trio (who are performing Beethoven's Triple Concerto on that Saturday), will take part in a post-film conversation.
