Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Performances, interviews, and archival footage combine to offer remarkable insight into the life of classical musician Barbara Hendricks in this intimate and comprehensive documentary from award-winning filmmaker Catherine Tatge. In this film, Tatge explores Hendricks' life from a chronological perspective, beginning with the prolific musician's discovery of music as a young child and following through to her career-defining debut at New York Town Hall in 1974 and beyond. What follows is not only a moving portrait of one of the leading classical performers of her generation, but a fascinating look into the creative mind of a devoted humanitarian as well.
