Films Talk Back, "Black Fiddlers"

Join director Eduardo Montes-Bradley for a talkback following a screening of his documentary exploring the legacy of African American violin players: Friday, Jan. 19, 2024, 7:30 p.m.

Black Fiddlers
Justin Robinson, Rhiannon Giddens and Montes-Bradley in North Carolina

Black Fiddlers traces the personal and family stories of violin players of African descent throughout the country, seeking common threads and through lines. Notable performers such as David Roberts, Earl White, and Rhiannon Giddens share their journeys and music, and local historians and academics offer scholarly approaches that deepen and enrich an understanding and appreciation of American folk music and culture. This compelling documentary aspires to provide the first comprehensive account of America's rich musical history as told by Black fiddlers today.

Join PVCC for Films Talk Back on the third Friday of the month for popular and critically acclaimed documentaries, shown on the big screen and paired with a talk by a passionate expert–often the filmmakers themselves. Please note that no food or drink is allowed in the theatre. Main Stage Theatre, V. Earl Dickinson Building
