I’m digging the contemplative look and feel of this John Forté doc, and I plan to see it at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Directed by Petter Ringbom, here are the important details:
Brooklyn-born John Forté was a Grammy-nominated musician in The Fugees at 21 and a federal prison inmate at 26. When his prison sentence was remarkably commuted in 2008, Forté was given a second chance to share his talents with the world. Chronicling his concert tour across Russia, this inspirational documentary takes us on Forté’s personal journey—one that’s as much about having his music heard as it is about hearing and learning from the music of others.
Its Tribeca screening will be the film’s world premiere, with 4 screenings scheduled between April 20 and 25, so click HERE to get info on tickets now.
