The Montopolis live musical score to the 1929 Ukrainian documentary Man with a Movie Camera has toured across the country in 2023 to rave reviews from both critics and audiences alike. Revered as a visual masterpiece and one of the greatest documentaries ever made, the film gives historical context to the current Russian invasion and lays bare the costs of the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe. The joyful, original live score celebrates the beauty and resilience of Ukraine’s people and aims to inspire American audiences to support the country in its time of need. Cellist Sara Nelson (Tosca String Quartet, David Byrne, Austin Symphony) will be joining pianist and composer Justin Sherburn.
