SongRise: Beyond the Fear of SingingAdvance Order Only- Est Delivery Fall 2017
A Film by Michael Stillwater and Doris Laesser Stillwater
A Song Without Borders Production
In a society where people are often measured according to the prowess of their performance, early childhood criticism of our sound or comparing our expression to others may contribute to hiding our own voice and creativity.
"Fear of singing has grown into a silent, global epidemic."
SongRise explores a widening gap between ‘performers’ and ‘non-performers’, the healing journey of acceptance and emergence from hiding our voices, and a global grassroots return, both individually and collectively, to appreciation for our natural song.
Performers and ‘non-performers’ share their experience while vocal educators from around the world invite viewers to ‘come out of hiding’.
This is the third release in an ongoing film series co-produced by Michael Stillwater and Doris Laesser Stillwater. Their first film, Shining Night: A Portrait of Composer Morten Lauridsen was deemed ‘a heartening rarity’ in Wall Street Journal and received four Best Documentary awards. Their second release, In Search of the Great Song, received two film awards in its first month of release.
Estimated Release Date: Nov. 15, 2017
