(Trailer for “Find Your Way”)
One week from tonight, West Seattle filmmaker Brian Nunes‘s documentary “Find Your Way” will have its Seattle premiere. It’s about buskers – street musicians, “some just trying their hand at busking for the first time and others who earn a full-time living from it.” Plus, says Nunes, it features “some well-known artists who’ve had experience playing on the street (including West Seattle resident Chris Ballew of The Presidents and world-renowned classical violinist Joshua Bell).” He adds that the film “on its surface is a street documentary about the struggles of making it in a world driven relentlessly by the allure of fame, but at its core is an examination of what it means to be successful - a topic we can all relate to.” Last month, “Find Your Way” won Best Documentary at the Houston International Film Festival. Next Thursday (May 29th), you can see it at 6:30 pm at the Jewelbox Theater, after a short live-music preshow with two performers from the film, and a short discussion post-screening. Nunes himself is a former busker. Admission is free but to make sure there’s room, go here to reserve a spot; the Jewelbox is at 2322 2nd Ave. in Belltown.
