American Symphony

In this deeply intimate documentary, musician Jon Batiste attempts to compose a symphony as his wife, writer Suleika Jaouad, undergoes cancer treatment.

Early in 2022, multi-instrumentalist Jon Batiste finds himself the most celebrated artist of the year with 11 Grammy nominations including Album of the Year.

In the midst of that triumph, Jon is immersed in his most ambitious challenge yet: composing American Symphony, an original symphony that thrillingly reimagines the classical traditions of the form, bringing together an expansive and inclusive diaspora of music for a performance at storied Carnegie Hall.

This trajectory is upended, however, when Batiste's life partner - author Suleika Jaouad - learns that her long dormant cancer has returned.

The documentary delivers a portrait of two inimitable artists at a crossroad and a profound meditation on art, love and the creative process.
