In New Orleans, a group of blind and visually-impaired teenagers from across the country gather to study with master musician Henry Butler at his creative music and jazz camp. The Music’s Gonna Get You Through documents the camp’s inaugural 2003 session and follows Butler and his campers as they use music to navigate life’s challenges.
This film was the film where I truly learned how to edit a documentary. It was challenging but the story was so heartwarming, the characters so loveable, that I did everything I could to do justice to the story that needed to be told.
