FILM: Talent Has Hunger
Followed by Q&A with Paul Katz with moderator Executive Director Tony Beadle
Talent has Hunger is an inspiring film about the power of music to consume, enhance, and propel lives. Filmed over 7 years, the film is a window into the passion that can grip and sustain a young player from childhood through the last days of life and the years of sacrifice and dedication a budding artist needs to fulfill one’s talent. The film focuses on the challenges of guiding gifted young people through the struggles of mastering the cello. Through the words and actions of master cello teacher, Paul Katz, it’s clear that this deep study of music not only prepares wonderful musicians, but builds self-esteem and a cultural and aesthetic character that will be profoundly important throughout his students’ lives. Talent Has Hunger offers unique front row seat in Katz’s New England Conservatory studio as students come for their lessons.
Free, no tickets required.
