Fresh Docs: Concerto for Two Brothers
Fri., March 28, 7 p.m. 2014
Work-in-progress screening of a feature documentary by NC filmmaker Cristina Cassidy. It explores the difficult childhoods of two brothers and the parental urge to push gifted children to perfection. Both Christopher Rex, a cellist, and Charles Gordon Rex Jr., a violinist, are celebrated soloist and ensemble performers in major symphony orchestras, but as boys in Orlando, Fla., the brothers were bullied relentlessly to practice and play by their brilliant, disturbed father.
