Accordions Rising is a mesmerizing experience in film making. This presentation grabbed my interest, listening to every note played, from the first frame to and including the full length of the credits. The transitions from live interviews to still photos was artfully and masterly done. My eyes and ears were washed with the fabulous variety of sound, movement, and emotion. The cemetery site portion brought tears to my eyes. The most gentle presentation of a subject unknown to me that I have ever experienced.
