What is the role of music? That question is at the heart of the Silk Road Ensemble, a group of master musicians from around the world brought together by acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma to perform, teach, and brainstorm. In The Music of Strangers, Academy Award- winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Keith Richards: Under the Influence, also screening at this year’s Festival) takes us on a global journey with Ma and the Ensemble that will open your eyes and attune your ears.
