Violins of Hope, a haunting film by Lance K. Shultz, reveals a bright spot following one of the darkest chapters in history. Narrated by actor Adrian Brody, the documentary follows the journey of Israeli violinmaker Amnon Weinstein in his efforts to restore violins that were played by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps as well as instruments connected to the Klezmer musical culture.
This event is part of a city-wide series related to an exhibition of the Violins of Hope collection coming to Nashville this spring.
