Event Details

The Raconteur Presents:

"Music By Prudence"

Winner of the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short

with Director Roger Ross Williams and Special Guest Prudence


Prudence lives in Zimbabwe, and for a long time almost no one knew about her hauntingly beautiful voice. No one knew the strong, resilient woman that owned it. They were unable to overlook her body: born with a debilitating condition called arthrogryphosis.


When Prudence was born, her paternal grandmother wanted her dead. In Zimbabwe, disabled children are sometimes believed to be the result of witchcraft. In extreme cases, families kill them-to remove the "curse" from their family.


Prudence's mother kept her and fed her. Cast out of her husband's (Prudence's father's) home, she brought the baby to her own mother's rural home. Four years later, she left.


Music by Prudence traces the path of this little girl, and her remarkable transcendence from a world of hatred and superstition into one of music, love and possibility.

 

Producer/Director Roger Ross Williams along with Prudence will be attending the screening.
