documentary, 23', 2020, Ateliers Varan (France)
Mister BlaiZ is a healer. He pours his heart and soul into bringing out the music within each and every one of us.
I had heard of him through a collegue who attended his gospel choirs : he had the reputation of changing people's lives.
Inspired by his resilience, I felt the need to explore his ways as we go through these strange times.
