Requiem For My Mother
Feature Documentary by Stephen Edwards, 2016, USA, 57 min.
Preceded by the short documentary SOY CUBANA
‘Requiem For My Mother’ is a biography of the original choral and orchestral composition by composer Stephen Edwards which was inspired by his mother and musical muse Rosalie Edwards. The ‘Requiem’ was written to commemorate his mother’s influence personally and professionally from his first music lessons as a child and throughout his career as a professional film score composer. Telling Stephen’s story about his mother and the composition he wrote reveals the effect this 21st century “Requiem” has on a new generation of musicians, performers and music lovers. This one hour film highlights the consequent celebration of the power and passion of music to transform grief to healing and death to hope for the future.
A short documentary film by Jeremy Ungar and Ivaylo Getov, 2016, USA, 17 min.
The Vocal Vidas are a female a cappella quartet from Santiago de Cuba – the cradle of Afro-Cuban music – this documentary explores their unique sound and tells the story of crafting a musical career in a society in which artistic merit is not measured solely by economic success.
