Speaking For Myself- A new film directed by Bert Shapiro
Against a background of “unseen” Manhattan, Speaking for Myself tells the inspiring story of eight contemporary artists living in New York City. Speaking for Myself pulls back the curtain so that we see the world through the artist’s eyes, their passions, inspirations, hard work and persistence. A uniquely fascinating and motivating journey. Featuring a dancer, a concert pianist, an actress, a Noh performer, a multi-instrumentalist, a tabla virtuoso, an organist and a singing poet. This very personal film focuses on the work and passions of these varied performing artists. Artists from the film, as well as the film’s director will be on hand to answer questions.
