With over 350 films being screened at the 18th annual Newport Beach Film Festival, The Orange County Register, a paid daily paper in Southern California with more than 350,000 subscribers, has identified Robert Shaw - Man of Many Voices - as one of its three picks to see.
With a quote from Kiki Wilson, here's what they tell their readers about the film:
“'Robert Shaw: Man of Many Voices' (6 p.m. April 25; 8:15 p.m. April 27): This documentary about the California-born, multi-Grammy Award-winning composer Robert Shaw features interviews and commentaries from President Jimmy Carter, Walter Cronkite and Yo-Yo Ma. Co-writer, director and producer Kiki Wilson sang with Shaw’s chorus for the last 18 years of his life.
'During the last years of his life, when he was at the height of his musical intelligence and experience, Talarc (sic) Records gave him the green light to record whatever it is he wanted to record. They so trusted his artistic output and his maturity and they didn’t care about his commercial success,' Wilson said."
