From the director of the Oscar-winning Twenty Feet from Stardom, this rich, absorbing documentary tells the extraordinary story of the Silk Road Ensemble, the renowned international musical collective created by legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Over the past 16 years, Ma has led a group of musicians from around the world in celebrating the universal power of music and exploring his conviction that “the intersection of cultures is where new things emerge.” To that end, Ma invited talent from such countries as China, Syria and Iran, incorporating folk and traditional instruments with the “western” variety. Political situations emerge in several poignant interviews, but the common language here is great music, of which there is plenty. Producer: Caitrin Rogers. Director: Morgan Neville. (US 2015) 96 min.
