When Anthony McGill makes his Chicago Symphony Orchestra debut on Friday at Ravinia in Aaron Copland’s Clarinet Concerto, it will be kind of like a homecoming.

Born and raised in the Chatham neighborhood on the south side of Chicago, he spent his childhood on Saturdays downtown at the Merit School of Music. At the age of 12, Larry Combs, then famous principal clarinet of the CSO, took him as a pupil. McGill’s audition piece for Combs was the Copland Concerto. He also performed the work with Marin Alsop, conductor and curator of Ravinia, who will be on the podium on Friday evening.

But, unlike most OSC rookies, McGill is not a young talent in the making on the cusp of a star-studded career. He celebrated his 42sd anniversary last week, and its star is already well established in the firmament of classical music. Principal clarinet at the New York Philharmonic since 2014, he joined the orchestra after a decade as principal clarinet at the Metropolitan Opera. It performed during the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009 and last year won the prestigious Avery Fisher Prize, with a scholarship of $ 100,000.

In a sense, McGill’s musical life was pre-established. The tiny Chicago bungalow where he grew up had a room dedicated solely to art and creativity. Her mother, Ira Carol McGill, was a modern dancer, art teacher and dance movement therapist. His father, Demarre McGill, who rose through the ranks of the Chicago Fire Department and retired with the title of Deputy Commissioner, was actively interested in all manner of art. His older brother, Demarre, is currently principal flute of the Seattle Symphony. Their parents now live in Las Vegas.

“Both of my parents were art teachers and visual artists,” McGill said in a telephone conversation from Vermont, where he works with students at the Marlboro Music Festival. “They were in love with music, so we always had music at home. It was part of our way of life.

Anthony also wanted to imitate his older flautist brother. As adults, the two performed together and held a free multi-day virtual festival in Orange County in January, featuring artists and songwriters from marginalized communities.

“I chose the clarinet because I wanted to play an instrument like my brother,” said McGill. “In fourth grade, I really liked the saxophone, but the alto saxophone was way too big for me. So my orchestra teacher said that I had to take the clarinet and that I could switch to the saxophone. But I never changed. I never went back to the saxophone again.

One of the reasons McGill pursued classical music was that he didn’t feel like an outsider in his largely white world. From the age of 10, he was part of the Chicago Teen Ensemble, a group that gave concerts in churches on the South Side of Chicago. His first youth conductor was Michael Morgan, a black musician and former assistant conductor of the Chicago Symphony, currently musical director of the Oakland Symphony in California.

“I was fortunate to see people who looked like me and who played classical music,” said McGill.

But in May 2020, two months after the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, his status as a black man in America stared him in the face. On May 25, George Floyd died below the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. Three days later, McGill released a 33-minute video titled #TakeTwoKnees that resonated throughout the classical music world. Standing in his living room, he plays “America the Beautiful” like a painful lament haunted by a few “false” notes that pierce the soul and a final note that never arrives. At the end, he kneels on both knees, his hands behind his back holding his clarinet.

“#TakeTwoKnees was not a planned thing,” said McGill. “It was a personal reaction to everything that was happening in our country. I couldn’t sleep one night and needed to speak directly. So I started to write, putting my thoughts on life, on our country, my sense of pride for this country and my discouraging and painful experiences as a black person in this country. And why we should all unite for equality and for justice.

He knew words weren’t enough.

“I’m a musician. The most direct way for me to communicate with people who don’t know me is through my music,” McGill said. But because of the pandemic, he continued, “I hadn’t done it in months. So it was a chance for me to explore this as an artist in a way that I had never really explored before. By playing this track, “America the Beautiful “I was able to communicate who I was, how I felt and also give my opinion on what it means to be an American.

McGill was surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reaction.

“I received a tremendous amount of good thoughts from musicians, writers and dancers and a whole community of people that I didn’t even know were there,” he said. “They were basically saying the same thing: we’re on your side. We stand with our brothers and sisters who are dying across the country. We stand in solidarity with our neighbors and with those who are not our neighbors as well. Thanks to the music, the way we communicate with people around the world, so many people were able to get down on their knees. Say “Enough is enough”. “

Although this is his late debut at CSO, McGill returns regularly for concerts in his hometown. In 2016, he performed Geoffrey Gordon’s Clarinet Quintet with the JACK Quartet for the American Music Project. And in 2019, the McGill brothers appeared together on stage at the Pritzker Pavilion in the portrayal of Joel Puckett. Duo of concertos—A work they commissioned — with the Grant Park Orchestra

After an initially “scary” month when the pandemic first hit, McGill has managed to remain professionally active during the ensuing shutdown. As a faculty member at The Juilliard School, Curtis Institute of Music, and Bard College Conservatory of Music, he continued to teach and run programs through Zoom. He is also artistic director of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra’s Music Advancement Program, a Saturday program for gifted students similar to the one he attended at Merit. The 2020 Avery Fisher Prize awarded an additional $ 30,000 to a McGill charity of choice; he used the money to set up a scholarship program for Music Advancement Program students.

He also made a few recordings during the pandemic and appeared in March with the Catalyst Quartet in a recital at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. He can’t wait to get back on stage.

“I love the audience,” he says. “I like that people come forward to listen, to be a part of this experience. The experience of the show is nothing without the people who want to listen to it.

Anthony McGill performs Copland’s Clarinet Concerto with Marin Alsop and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Friday at 8 p.m. in Ravinia. The program also includes Haydn’s Symphony No. 60 “Il distratto” and that of Brahms Variations on a theme by Haydn. ravinia.org

The new ethno-cultural festival brings together masters, artists and connoisseurs of crafts and folk art in one stay

The first international ethnocultural festival Aga-Bazar was held in the Bolgar museum-reserve on July 3. lively place of commerce, meeting with merchants from Europe and Asia, but also a cultural center. The calendar of modern life of the Great Bolgar has been added along with another interesting date. The organizers hope that the festival will become permanent. Where to find the recreation of ancient jewelry in the craft rows, whether it is easy to learn how to play the vargan, and why double-humped camels will move from Central Asia to Russia – read Realnoe Vremya’s report.

What games did the bazaar-bash play

The “Oriental Bazaar” is the central point of attraction of the whole festival. It is the merchant stalls – artisanal and gastronomic – which are the first to welcome the guests. Researcher of the Bolgar Museum-Reserve Renat Vagapov (also bazaar-bash [chief] festival) says: about 600 participants came from all over the country (but mainly from the Volga region). About 70 of them are artisans who present their products. The party gathered at least 4,000 guests.

“In addition to the fast-paced trade, one can participate in master classes – for example, old games. Today, under the Uen Fest tent, I discovered the European game “quarta”, which develops logic and imagination. Come back another time – I’ll teach you how to play alkerk, a medieval Arabic game like checkers – we have a lot of vacations. There are no gastronomic master classes today, but our participants actively present their products to the guests, ”Vagapov said.

The bazaar-bash promised that there would not be cheap Chinese goods in the trade stalls, but that there would be unique items and handmade goods in abundance. Indeed, the producers offered halva and pastila, honey and propolis. According to the participants themselves, they did not have to pay for a place in the bazaar, and the organizers themselves provided them with a commercial tent and counters. There were also original shops: for example, you could taste hot Udmurt perepechs, which are prepared over an open fire. The chefs took it with them … a mobile oven!

Oriental Bazaar is the focal point of the entire festival

The best tea for warriors

An attractive place, surprisingly, was the point where they learned how to brew fireweed – according to the original and unique rule. Yevgenia Tereshina, a craftswoman from Yelabuga district, said two families (her and her daughter) have left the towns to open their own farm. At the same time, they embarked on the collection and production of fireweed, even organized such a festival – this year it will be held on July 24 in the village of Novaya Anzirka, Yelabuga district.

“The peculiarity of fireweed infusion is that it does not contain caffeine, so it is useful even for pregnant women, the elderly. After all, the secret is in the consistency: if you stir it strongly – it soothes, weaker – it invigorates. The sheet must first be prepared – grounding on a special board with a wire in a special container turned over. We offer to do this to festival guests, mainly men – it takes a lot of effort. Then we brew fermented fireweed in this way. Before the revolution, such a drink was especially recommended to soldiers – as a restorative and life-prolonging “, the craftswoman shared her secrets.

Nadezhda Shaykhislamova presented the antique jewelry replicas of Tatar and Bashkir women at the oriental bazaar

Beautiful replica

Nadezhda Shaykhislamova, a master of applied arts from the Milli Khasite union, presented replicas of ancient jewelry from Tatar and Bashkir women at the Eastern Bazaar:

“All the accessories in my shop are plastic, sometimes stones are added. They are very large, but such a material makes them lighter and cheaper. This is why they are called replicas. Real jewelry reconstructions are first-class jewelry, their price reaches 10,000 rubles. If such jewelry appears in an auction, it is quickly bought because connoisseurs know that it will not be possible to get such a large number anytime soon. But our reenactments can be seen in Aga Bazar anyway – in the national courtyard where representatives of different ethnicities show off their particular national values, from costumes to meals.

The central stage was located directly behind the stores

How will your jaw harp sound?

The central stage was located directly behind the stores. The first Aga Bazaar officially opened there. Deputy head of Tatarstan spa district Sergey Tyunev and director of Bolgar museum-reserve Ramil Ziganshin did so. Both hoped that the festival would become annual and grow from year to year.

The main meaning of the festival is that the culture of different but neighboring ethnicities is present here. Everyone showed their art on three stages of Aga Bazar – the concerts didn’t stop, the spectators rushed from one inviting melody to another lively dance. The musicians demonstrated rare folk instruments, while the harp could be purchased. Thus Dalila Shaymardanova (Atelier Your Cosmos, Kazan) offered different harps made of steel and brass alloy at the Oriental Bazaar:

“The price range of Jewish harps is wide, each of them sounds particularly: louder, quieter. People are often interested in them, they are curious. Many are afraid to make the first sound but are reassured (as I promise to teach them how to make the first sound in five minutes), they decide to make a purchase.

“Don’t eat Vasya, he’s good!”

There is a camel farm outside the reserve, but only a half-year-old Vasya camel calf arrived at the festival. As the director of the family farm Artyom Kirichenko said, the two-humped baby is here to be exhibited. He can’t even be fed, let alone horseback riding:

“We don’t let anyone ride the animals, even on the farm, located behind the chak-chak museum and made up of 38 camels. The case is that this significantly reduces their lifespan. We can offer our customers camel milk, woolen items, but we will not let them ride the animals. This is why our animals live up to 50-70 years. I will note that a two-humped camel, or Bactrian camel, is going to be on the red list. They mainly live in Central Asia and people have become accustomed to consuming them. They ate them all, to put it simply. So I will only be happy if they migrate from the deserts and steppes of our neighbors to the vast regions of Russia. It is a very peaceful, communicative animal, it will not attack a person first, ”said the farmer.

Award winning horse

By the way, camels aren’t the only ones welcoming Aga Bazaar guests. An inhabitant of Bolgar who modestly decided not to show up brought one of his horses which he breeds for his pleasure. It’s a real diamond – a Standardbred named Colombina. Experts call these horses “a distinctive award-winning horse”. A strong and large enough horse immediately attracts the attention of those who are not indifferent to animals. The horse breeder allowed photos to be taken with the horse and let people ride it for free. However, Colombina herself was a little alarmed. Maybe she was just flirtatious. As her owner explained, a male horse is nearby, she wants to attract him.

While some festival guests visited the stores, others enjoyed the performances of artists. National costumes of Tatars and Russians, Chuvashs and Mordvins, Husbands and Udmurts, songs and dances alternated. A big concert with artists from the artistic union IsTElek took place on the main stage in the evening. Various groups and many other virtuoso artists of folk fusion and electronic music performed there. Heavy rain attempted to stop guests and bring the festival to a close at noon, but guests took refuge in cafes and tea rooms, and the laughter and songs resonated with new strength after the rain.

Pan-O-Prog returns in action with a full list of events July 4-11

After the 2020 Pan-O-Prog was diverted from July to a possible September festival in Lakeville, the volunteer committee decided that even a scaled-down version of the fall was not achievable because the COVID-19 pandemic continued to cancel community gatherings until the end of the year.

But 2021 is another year.

Much of Minnesota’s population has received vaccines to counteract the virus, and community events large and small are back on the calendar.

The Pan-O-Prog committee decided in May to put the plans it had implemented for the July 4-11 summer festival in the “it’s happening” column.

The Grand Parade, fireworks, rides, tournaments, music, games and more are set to return.

For those looking to participate in the action, certain registration deadlines are still available to register. People can participate in events such as cribbage, bowling, horseshoe, softball, archery, pickleball and beach volleyball tournaments. More information on registration is at panoprog.org.

For the younger ones there will be events such as Kiddie Parade, Baby Crawl-A-Thon, Big Wheel Races, Pet Show, Pedal Tractor Pull and Ping-Pong Ball Drop.

People of all ages can participate in two different races. The Fun Run will take place just before the Cruise Night in downtown Lakeville on Friday July 9. The next day, the Pan-O-Prog Fun Run will take place at Casperson Park.

Evenings will be plentiful during the festival.

It all starts with the fireworks display. During the July 4th fireworks, there will be no parking available at King Park. People are encouraged to enjoy the fireworks of a party at their homes or parked nearby in their vehicles.

There will be the park party on Tuesday July 6 at Antlers Park. The event will feature food trucks, outdoor games and prizes. The music for the Lakeville Community Band will be at 7:00 p.m. and the movie “Raya and the Last Dragon” will begin at 9:00 p.m. The event is also a fundraiser, as people are invited to bring a new durable backpack or money to donate for new backpacks for middle school and high school students in Lakeville.

The VINGO and Beach Bash will take place on Wednesday July 7 at Antlers Park. This event is aimed at teenagers. VINGO is a game like BINGO, but to fill the map, music videos are played and the names of the artists help people “x” on a square. After the VINGO games, there will be a teen dance.

Beer, Brats & Bingo will begin at 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 8 at the Lakeville Area Arts Center grounds.

For the bingo night, the Lions will be handing out over $ 20,000 in prizes over 40 games as the tent has been oversized to 9,000 square feet to accommodate 2,000 people.

A few thousand customers are also expected to eat, as the menu will be filled with kids, burgers, pork sandwiches, and hot dogs.

(More information about the event is in a story in the June 25 edition of Sun Thisweek Lakeville and online at SunThisweek.com.)

The Lions Beer Tent will also feature music on Friday and Saturday nights, including a performance by JT and the Gunslingers, a popular country rock band from southwest Minnesota.

JT Thompson is a native of Rochester and a former Army Ranger who has turned to music in recent years to spread the fun. The group performs a combination of covers and original music. Two days before the band plays in Lakeville, they’ll be in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, for Country Boom opening act for best country rock band Diamond Rio.

Babe’s Music Bar & Grill will host its dance party on Thursday July 8, with acoustic music on the terrace and rock band Junk FM inside the bar. For those who don’t know Junk FM, the band’s slogan is: “Ruining your favorite songs since 2010”. “Ruining” is perhaps too strong a term, as the band is filled with accomplished musicians, who have just left their own imprint on the hits of AC / DC’s Top 40, The Backstreet Boys and Bruno Mars.

The next two musical evenings at Babe’s will feature Top 40 pop and rock group Good for Gary on Friday and energetic and eclectic Pop Rocks on Saturday. Good for Gary plays songs from artists such as Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift and Macklemore, while Pop Rocks has a stadium rock vibe with covers of Bon Jovi, No Doubt and U2.

The cars will be the center of attention during the cruise night on Friday July 9 and the following day at the auto show in downtown Lakeville.

Since you can’t have cool cars without a musical backdrop, there will be two bands on the Citizens Bank MN stage in Market Plaza on the night of the cruise. Double Take will play from 4 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. and Rhino will take over from 7:45 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Rock and country rock are the specialties of Double Take with music by Aerosmith, Blondie, Johnny Cash, Bon Jovi , Robert Palmer and ZZ Top. Rhino is billed as a Top 40 rock band, playing hits from artists such as Prince, the Stray Cats, Big and Rich, Hall and Oates and U2.

If the music doesn’t match the mood, the high-flying, body-slapping action will be in the square circle on Cruise Night when Steel Domain Wrestling rings the bell on its matches near the Fairground Carnival. The event is free and is presented as family.

On Saturday, the Citizens Bank MN stage in Market Plaza will have the Southside Kool Jazz Combo playing from 11 am to 1 pm plus music in the afternoon and Mr. Peabody from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm The latter will cover Don Henley. , Chicago and Kansas.

A free shuttle will be available from the Lakeville North High School parking lot to McGuire Middle School from 4:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Friday, July 9 and from 1 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 10.

Lakeville is one of the few communities in the region to have a big carnival this summer. It could be four busy days north of the grounds of the Lakeville Area Arts Center, as the carnival takes place Thursday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, 12 pm-11pm; Saturday 10 am-11pm; Sunday, 11 am-6pm

Discounted Carnival Passports will be available for purchase until 4 p.m. July 8. There is a limited number of passports in each store; no rain checks. Passports are $ 49 (cash only) in advance and are available at all three Lakeville Cub locations, City Hall Parks and Recreation (credit card option) and Ace Hardware counter in downtown Lakeville. Passports are for unlimited travel for the four days. The cost is $ 55 at the door. All mechanical rides are included with the passport. Individual journey tickets will be available on site.

Firefighters and police vehicles are on display on Saturday July 10 at the fun fair.

Junior royalty was on June 21 and the Miss Lakeville scholarship program will take place on Wednesday July 7. The cost to attend the program at Lakeville South High School is $ 10, and you need a button to attend.

Official Pan-O-Prog buttons, which are required to participate in certain events, can be purchased at various locations in Lakeville. They include Ace Hardware, Babe’s Music Bar, City Hall, Cub Foods, Kwik Trip stores, Highview Hills, Lakeville Bowl, Lakeville Liquor locations, Lakeville Heritage Center, MainStreet Coffee & Wine Bar and several POP events including the information booth at downtown.

One of the events that people will definitely want a button for is the Locket Hunt. The prize is $ 250 in cash for finding the hidden button on public property in Lakeville, but not in any of the following parks – Aronson, Antlers, Casperson, James Jensen, Steve Michaud, or Downtown Plaza.

The first clue was published in the POP special edition last week. The next indices will be published daily from 9 a.m. on Monday July 5 at panoprog.org and facebook.com/panoprog.

It is not necessary to damage or destroy any property to find the locket. Instructions on what to do when the treasure is found are printed on the back of the locket.

If the medallion is not found, the hunt will end on July 12 at 8:00 a.m.

The annual Pan-O-Prog Run will have races for all ages on July 10 at Casperson Park.

Races include a 1 mile (start at 8:45 am) and 4 mile (start at 7:45 am) run or a free ½ mile Fun Run for children under 9 (start around 8:30 am). ). Participants are requested to arrive at least 20 before the race start time.

Early registration is due June 28, cost per runner is $ 20. Registration after June 28 is $ 25.

“The Pan-O-Prog Run is such a fun event. It really is a great race for everyone; there are young families, groups of friends and even competitive runners running every year. says Kacie Robinson, Lakeville Parks and Recreation Coordinator. “My favorite part of the day is when the kids are running in the Fun Run and their parents, who just ran, are there to cheer them on. “

Race results will be available online after the races, prizes and race medals will be awarded after the 1 mile race is completed. Runners will receive a 2021 Pan-O-Prog Run t-shirt.

As New York audiences returned to theaters this past weekend, the first show on the schedule was the premiere of a new documentary set in Yellow Springs.

Produced and directed by Yellow Springs filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, and co-produced by local comedian Dave Chappelle’s Pilot Boy Productions, the film takes a behind-the-scenes look at the rural outdoor comedy shows presented by Chappelle’s last summer. at the Wirrig family lodge just north of the village.

Still listed as “Untitled” until its preview screening on Saturday, June 19 at Radio City Music Hall, the film held the prestigious closing night of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. A room that would have been crowded with nearly 6,000 customers attended the unveiling of the work now titled “Dave Chappelle: This Time This Place”.

In a phone interview on Monday, following what the Oscar-winning couple described as a ‘whirlwind’ weekend in New York City, Reichert and Bognar said they were eagerly awaiting local residents to see the film in which the city plays a role. A general exit plan, however, has not been announced.

“It’s up to Dave’s people,” Bognar said.

The title “This Time This Place” refers to the direction Reichert said he gave his film crew to put together footage.

“It’s about this place and this time,” she told the young filmmakers, all associated with the film department at Wright State University, where Reichert is a professor emeritus and Bognar is an alumnus and alumnus. faculty. “This is Yellow Springs, not the country as a whole, not Dayton down the road.”

And the concept of “this time” was also focused, Bognar added, explaining that their intention was to capture a specific moment, not to make a historic statement.

The moment turned out to be historic, however, as it took place amid the shutdown of the coronavirus pandemic as well as protests over the police murder of George Floyd and other black Americans. Locally, as the film begins in June 2020, most normal activities were suspended indefinitely as local youth stepped forward to lead what has become a weekly series of marches and rallies to protest police violence against black people. .

Bognar said the filmmakers were deeply inspired “by the courage [the young people] showed to go down 68, to speak the truth to power.

The impetus for the start of the documentary project, however, was the pandemic and its effect on live performances, especially comedy shows, as they represent Chappelle’s world.

The idea was Chappelle’s, they said. A News request to Chappelle’s manager for an interview or a comment from the comedian was not answered, although the manager did forward a photo from the red carpet on Saturday night.

Chappelle came to them on June 5, Reichert and Bognar recalled.

Chappelle noted that he had recently won the Mark Twain Award for American Comedy and that Reichert and Bognar had just won an Oscar for their documentary “American Factory”, concluding, “We are neighbors. We have to work together.

He told them he had an idea to put on a comedy show at a local area.

The lockdown had been in place for almost three months at that time. “Comedians have to appear in front of the audience,” Reichert said, Chappelle told them. He said he got permission from the governor’s office that morning, if certain protocols were followed, and was ready to go ahead and try his idea.

“I think it should be documented,” Reichert told them.

Bognar said the idea was “compelling,” although the couple expected a calm summer after a busy winter and spring that included an awards season honoring “American Factory” and the release of a new movie, “9 to 5: The History of a Movement.

“We love Dave, and we’ve loved Dave for a long time,” Bognar said.

Reichert said their next natural question was when.

“Tomorrow” was Chappelle’s response.

Need a team, quickly the filmmakers contacted their Wright State network.

That first night on the Wirrig Pavilion stage, in front of an audience of about 65 guests, “Dave had a very powerful speech about George Floyd,” Bognar detailed. This weekend’s footage then became the short “8:46,” which was shared widely on social media after Netflix posted it to YouTube. The headline referred to the initially reported time, eight minutes and 46 seconds, during which Minneapolis cop Daryl Chauvin held his knee to Floyd’s neck, causing his death.

Extend the shows

The filmmakers continued to shoot as the outdoor shows continued through the summer and into the fall, as Chappelle hosted a roster of well-known artists in the rural setting of Meredith Road. Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, David Letterman, Trevor Noah, CK Louis, Bob Saget, Tiffany Haddish and regulars Donnell Rawlings, Michelle Wolf and Mo Amer were among the comedians who performed. Musical guests included Common, John Mayer, Erykah Badu and Questlove.

More than 50 shows took place before the end of the season in late September, a week earlier than expected, after an unidentified person associated with the performances was reportedly exposed to COVID-19.

Ongoing performances were allowed through a temporary waiver from the Miami Township Board of Zoning Appeals, or BZA, after the township’s zoning inspector informed owners they had to request such a waiver in order to host an activity. commercial on land zoned for agriculture use.

The hearing in which the application was considered and then approved would be included in the documentary.

Chappelle most recently hosted a dozen more shows at the pavilion over three weeks from May 26 to June 12, with tickets at $ 450 for a pair. But the adventure has apparently come to an end. Although the original zoning waiver, which set an end date of October 4, 2020, was amended at another BZA hearing to extend until early August of this year, the terms of the modification no longer applies. Specifically, the request stated that the reason for the shows was to provide a venue to perform while the traditional indoor venues remained closed. The reopening of cinemas across the country erases this need.

Film making

“We didn’t foresee what was going to happen,” Bognar said of the events that unfolded throughout the summer of 2020. The goal of the filmmakers was to document what happened. Although Chappelle was a co-producer, Reichert and Bognar had control of the direction, Bognar said.

“We set the style and the tone. We shaped the movie the way we wanted.

When asked if this was their first documentary initiated by the subject of the film, Bognar pointed to other projects, including “Sparkle,” which focused on Sheri “Sparkle” Williams, a long-time dancer. date from the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, commissioned by DCDC; and “Making Morningstar” with the Cincinnati Opera.

“We love to make films about people who take their art, their profession, their work very seriously,” said Bognar. The film Chappelle gave them the opportunity to enter the world of comedy, he said.

“The real gift for us was to be part of the culture,” he added.

One quality that ties all of their films together, Reichert said, is an attempt to “dig deep” and show the humanity of their subjects. “We’re not trying to take it any further,” she said, noting that “The Last Truck” was about closing a single factory; “American Factory” features a Chinese businessman who opens a glass factory in southwest Ohio; and “Home Lion”, which focused on several families whose children were being treated for cancer at the same facility.

Finishing the new film in time for its Tribeca Film Festival debut “has been a huge effort,” Bognar said, adding that they had “never made a great movie like this in a year.”

The couple worked there until the Sunday before its premiere.

Incorporating it into the Tribeca Festival was also Chappelle’s idea, as was its screening at Radio City Music Hall, which had been closed for 15 months until it reopened for the premiere.

“Let’s go big,” was Chappelle’s advice, said Bognar, describing the comedian as a “visionary”.

“Dave sometimes sees a turn before most of us even see a turn coming,” said Bognar.

When the Tribeca board of directors accepted the film and scheduled it to close the film festival, “We were thrilled,” Bognar said.

The experience, then, of attending the screening was “something just out of this world,” he added. “The feeling in this room. We have never experienced anything like it. The laugh – you could feel it in your chest. The premiere of the film The Juneteenth was also significant for the couple.

The approximately 6,000-seat hall was the largest space they screened a movie in, they said. The Schuster Center in Dayton, with 2,300 seats, was previously perhaps the largest, added Reichert.

She suggested that the energy of Saturday night was heightened by the excitement of being in a theater setting again.

“There was so much hunger to go out. Everyone in the room was so happy. People were kissing.

Media reports from the evening, noting that customers had to show proof of vaccination to enter, also echoed the positive response felt by Reichert and Bognar. A variety of media weighed in on the event, with many marking the reopening of the theater as an important moment in the life of the city.
