BEN PROUDFOOT, “A CONCERTO IS A CONVERSATION”

WINNER: 2022 JURY AWARD – BEST SHORT

Dir. Ben Proudfoot and Kris Bowers
2020, United States, 13 mins.

Filmmaker Ben Proudfoot accepts the SDFF 2022 Jury Winner – Best Short for A Concerto Is A Conversation, which he co-directed with the film’s subject, musician Kris Bowers.

In the poetic, visually-stunning short, virtuoso jazz pianist and film composer Bowers tracks his family’s lineage through his 91 year-old grandfather from Jim Crow Florida to the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

JURY NOTE
“Beautifully shot, edited, and produced. A warm, uplifting story about resilience and creativity. Compositionally outstanding. ‘A Concerto is a Conversation’ balances the warmth of the characters and their impressive stories against the coldness of the history, weaving through glorious music as character and metaphor.”
