Surprise winner of the Audience Award at this year’s MIFF in its World Premiere, the inspiring film BOTSO now returns for its first full-fledged theatrical run! The astonishing life of “Botso” Korisheli—musician, sculptor, and beloved teacher—is a story that seems to have to be told, and so it is, rivetingly, as BOTSO follows now 91-year-old Botso from literally the arms of Stalin through imprisonment by the Nazis to inspirational musician and musical educator on the central California coast. He touches generations of students, inspiring some of the world’s premier musical artists, including 5 time Grammy winner Kent Nagano. Unrated. 82 Min.
