It would have been far too easy if John Forté — a Grammy nominated artist at the age of 21 from his participation on The Fugees‘ “Staying Alive” to a convicted felon — made his documentary, The Russian Winter purely a self-referential piece. Instead, he has created a documentary about his opportunity to soujorn the land of Russia in a quest to have his music heard. Organising shows across the country and performing for various charities with a host of other Russian musicians, viewers are given the opportunity experience a musicians world of learnings and challenges. The Russian Winter debuted at the recent Tribeca Film Festival and the next step is for it to be picked up. Check out the trailer below.
