The Fargo Film Festival is proud to announce the 2020 opening night showcase: Award-Winning Short Films with special guest Richard Antoine White.
This world-class trio of award-winning films includes 2020 narrative short and Academy Award winner “The Neighbors’ Window,” animated short winner “Mind My Mind,” and documentary short winner “R.A.W. Tuba,” followed by a Q and A with that film’s featured subject, Dr. Richard Antoine White.
About R.A.W. Tuba
“R.A.W. Tuba” tells the triumphant story of Richard Antoine White (R.A.W.). As a child in Baltimore, he experienced poverty and homelessness, but went on to become a world-class symphony musician and professor.
Growing up, Richard found shelter wherever he could, sometimes in abandoned rowhomes where rats would chew on him as he slept. Now in his 40s, he still bears scars from their bites. But despite enormous challenges, Richard went on to become the first African-American to receive a Doctorate in Music for Tuba Performance. He is now a tenured professor at the University of New Mexico and the principal tubist of the New Mexico Philharmonic.
“R.A.W. Tuba” will screen as a part of the opening night Shorts Showcase at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17 at the Fargo Theatre.
Richard Antoine White will appear live on stage for a Q and A immediately following the film.
