Vivian's Music 1969
Based on true events, Vivian's Music 1969, is about a bubbly 14-year-old bundle of energy named Vivian, the mysterious jazz legend Luigi Wells, and the racial tensions of a segregated American city in 1969 that all combine in this fantasia on, race, music, and family. Vivian is shot in the back of the head during a protest by a white cop inciting one of the worst race riots the United States has ever seen. This fantasia for two actors gives Vivian a life, a family, a love of music, and a reason to live; the jazz legend whos back in the neighborhood might be her real father. Can they find each other, before the city explodes?
