In conversation with: Director Stephen Williams 

Born the illegitimate child of an African slave and a French aristocrat, Joseph Bologne (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) improbably rose through the ranks of 18th-century French society as a virtuoso violinist, composer and fencer. Full of opulence and romance, this electric and boisterous biopic is a fitting tribute to a true original.
