Beyond the Fear of Singing
Director: Michael Stillwater
Winner of the Royal Reel Award at the 2018 Canada International Film Festival
In a society where people are often measured by the prowess of their performance, those of us who at an early age experience criticism of the sound of our voice, or find our singing constantly being compared unfavorably to others, may end up reluctant to sing.
Beyond the Fear of Singing explores how this world-wide epidemic of silenced song is being met by an irrepressible uprising of the primal urge to sing. Drawing extensively on the spoken insights and original music of voice educators and artists from North America, Europe, Australia, and India, it presents a truly global perspective. Beyond the Fear of Singing is the third feature from In Search of the Great Song, the award-winning documentary series that explores and celebrates the music that lives in all of us.
The first two films, Shining Night and In Search of the Great Song, were screened at previous film festivals here on the island.
Released in 2019
