Composer Kris Bowers on self-doubt and his new short film A Concerto is a Conversation
Kris Bowers is the award-winning musical mastermind behind the scores for Green Book, When They See Us and Bridgerton. He recently wrote his first concerto, but as a Black composer, he felt out of place in the concert hall. To ease his self-doubt, he turned to his 91-year-old grandfather for advice. Now, a short film he co-directed about that conversation, titled A Concerto is a Conversation, might end up at the Oscars. Bowers joined Tom Power to tell us more about the film, his music and his grandfather.
