Screen Series: The Soloist1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Screen Series hopes to showcase and explore the roles that the various arts genre can play in our lives through the popular medium of films.
This May, National Library focuses on the genre of music through the first of two screenings, The Soloist.
Based on a true story, the film features the relationship between Los Angeles Times newspaper columnist Steve Lopez and a schizophrenic homeless musician he met on the street, Nathaniel Ayers. Explore the inspiring story of how Ayer’s love for music, took him away from his problems and fears to a higher state of ecstasy.
There will be a post-film discussion, facilitated by Nicholas Chee where he will engage the audience on the role of music through a basic film deconstruction, plot/character analysis, and the art of storytelling.
