The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will screen the 2016 Portland-made independent feature film.
The film tells the story of Felix Kruger, a contemporary eccentric young classical composer commissioned to write his first major ballet. His struggles with writer’s block and a drinking problem, however, jeopardize his music and threaten to destroy his relationship with his girlfriend and those around him.
Through a series of eye opening events, his music begins to reflect his own inner journey and transformation. It is also through the mentorship of his good friend Leonard, a 65-year-old retiree, and a surprising secret that Kruger discovers the power and importance of life’s simple things.
“The Maestro” was written and directed by David Lunday. He also stars in the movie, along with Dennis Fitzpatrick, Haley Talbot, and Robert Projansky.
Lunday is a composer himself, and has scored feature films, documentaries, instructional DVDs, and iPhone apps for over 15 years.
“The Maestro” was an official Selection for the 2016 Madrid International Film Festival and the Los Angeles CineFest. It lasts 86 minutes.
