Becoming Geppetto, Award-winning Documentary at TCCC

May 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$15

Director Dale Lindquist will present his award-winning documentary, Becoming Geppetto. This film chronicles the amazing journey of master guitar builder Bruce Petros and his son, Matt. The film is frequently and delightfully punctuated by wonderful musical performances on these ornate, resonant Petros guitars. Q&A with the Director will follow.

Surrounded by farmland in a small town in northern Wisconsin, father and son luthier duo, Bruce and Matt Petros make world-renowned acoustic guitars. These guitars have been played around the world by music giants Like Paul Simon, and this documentary showcases the quiet lives that create some of the most skillfully hand-crafted instruments available. The film received both the Jury’s Choice Award and the Audience Choice Award at the Green Bay Film Festival and was an official selection of the Wisconsin Film Festival.
