We are thrilled to announce that Quinton Morris’s short film BREAKTHROUGH has been selected for inclusion in the 2016 Las Vegas Lift-Off Online Festival. The film is now available to stream internationally from June 6-12, 2016 on Vimeo On-Demand. Please VOTE for BREAKTHROUGH for best film, which will allow it to premiere in Vancouver and Los Angeles.
BREAKTHROUGH honors the life and music of Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a violinist and composer of African origin who, against all odds, rose to become one of the most prolific and forgotten figures of the 18th century. Directed by Vivian Phillips (Chair of the Seattle Arts Commission), the film also includes guest appearances by actress Molly Tomhave, Randy Engstrom (Director of the City of Seattle Arts & Culture), pianist Josh Rawlings, and bassist Evan Flory-Barnes, among other Seattle artists.
