When conductor Gustavo Dudamel’s international tours are disrupted by deadly protests across his native Venezuela, one of the world’s finest and most beloved musicians faces a daunting set of challenges — to his commitment to the mentor who changed his life, to friends and musicians he’s led since his teens, and to his belief in art’s transformative capacity. ¡VIVA MAESTRO! follows Dudamel around the world as he responds to unexpected and imposing obstacles with stirring music-making that celebrates the power of art to renew and unite.
“Character is at the heart of ¡VIVA MAESTRO! — Dudamel’s personal character and the character of his music making. With conductors, those aren’t always the same thing, which, of course, is what makes them interesting. In Dudamel’s case, however, what you see is what you hear, and that’s what makes him and the movie riveting.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
“This is a film to be experienced, not just seen (and seen again). It is the perfect confluence of music, drama, and uplifting story.” – Neely Swanson, Easy Reader
