BIG VOICE captures a tumultuous year in the life of a visionary high school choir teacher and his students as they overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to become one big voice in this inspiring musical documentary.
BIG VOICE follows the tumultuous yearlong journey of "bigger than life" choir director Jeffe Huls and his most advanced co-ed ensemble "The Madrigals" as they strive to create extraordinary music within the context of a public school. Mr. Huls' undeterred passion for the choral arts and music literacy powers his determination to maintain rigorous standards and expectations. Following a series of competitive auditions, Mr. Huls compiles his dream ensemble - the most ideal combination of voices he's ever had. Soon he discovers that these thirty-two talented teenagers are also the most unwieldy group he has ever taught. Mr. Huls must convince his students to set aside their egos, conflicting styles, and teenage angst to achieve the exquisite sound he knows they are capable of.Written by
Watched this award winning film at the South Dakota Film Festival and loved it. Especially enjoyed the personal moments with the students and their mentor/teacher Mr. Huls. This film captures yours attention and tugs at your emotions, you will find yourself rooting for the cast or at least some of them. Technically this film is excellent, fantastic sound, lighting and cinematography. Although I love music documentaries,I am not a huge fan of high school choirs and was not sure what to expect however I thought the story line was very interesting and included just the right balance of humor and serious moments. I am really looking forward to seeing what this film maker leaves her mark on next, whatever project that might be.
