A Concerto is a Conversation

Small story, big power.

This doc, which is on the list of possible contenders for an Oscar, is a lovely look at the connection between a grandfather and his grandson.

The younger man is Kris Bowers, a pianist and composer rising fast in Hollywood.

His grandfather, Horace Bowers Sr., is a self-made businessman who overcame long odds and rose above racial hatred to take care of his family, striving each day so that his offspring could have an easier route than he did.

The relationship between the two men is beautifully-etched and poignant, the film a small miracle.
