Join us for a free screening of the uplifting film ¡Viva Maestro!, which documents Gustavo Dudamel’s musical response to deadly protests in his native Venezuela.

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. ¡VivaMaestro! 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.

Following the film, Colburn Board Chair Andrew Millstein, Executive Producer of Shapeshifter Films and former President of Disney Animation Studios, will lead an intimate Q&A with director and award-winning filmmaker Ted Braun. Movie Maker Magazine has named Braun—along with Errol Morris, Oliver Stone, Michael Moore, and Robert Redford—one of 25 filmmakers whose work has changed the world.

Patrons are encouraged to be fully vaccinated or obtain a negative COVID-19 test, but it is not required. See the full list of safety protocols for more information.
