The story of the international gymnastics phenomenon who overcame overwhelming odds to become the first African American ever to be named Individual All-Around Champion in artistic gymnastics at the Olympic Games.
The movie tells the story of Laerte (Lázaro Ramos), a talented violinist who after failing to be admitted into the OSESP Orchestra is forced to give music classes to teenagers in a public school at Heliopolis. His path is full of difficulties, but the transforming power of music and the friendship arising between the teacher and the students open the door into a new worldWritten by
A Must See for Musicians, Educators, Teens & Parents
Inspirational, insightful, and reaffirming of the critical importance and impact of music, competent teachers, and opportunity on our lives. Word on the street, along with text messages at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (2/2016): "This film is in a class by itself; Don't miss it; Get in line early; You'll want to see it again with your teens; Make sure your musician friends see The Violin Teacher -- It's a Must See."
It's earthy, real, moving, and inspirational-- "Very non-Disney, fast moving with in depth character development which made it really good," I overheard a college student say. The storyline, casting, performances, directing and editing are exceptional. Accolades to all.
If I had the financial means, I'd buy a copy for every secondary school in America to show & discuss at assemblies and Parent/ Teacher meetings. This film's impact could improve the seriousness and commitment of students, parents, teachers, donors and communities. (Voters in Santa Barbara passed to impose a special parcel tax on themselves after local high school student volunteers gathered thousands of voter signatures to fund public music programs independently, outside political, school board administrative greed.)
After viewing The Violin Teacher, audiences fully understand the value of providing high quality instruction with performance expectations and discipline demands to students determined to improve their lot in life; and the potential determinants of familial situations that can be overcome. Whether leaving the theater smiling or teary-eyed, The Violin Teacher moved its audience.
