Description

Over the past 15 years, The Silk Road Ensemble, an international collective created by acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma, exemplifies music’s ability to blur geographical boundaries, blend disparate cultures and inspire hope for both artists and audiences. The Music of Strangers follows an ever-changing lineup of performers drawn from the ensemble’s more than 50 instrumentalists as they gather in locations across the world. Blending performance footage, personal interviews and archival film, director Morgan Neville and producer Caitrin Rogers create an intensely personal chronicle of passion, talent and sacrifice. Through these moving individual stories, the filmmakers paint a vivid portrait of a bold musical experiment and a global search for the ties that bind.
