Great portrait of musician, philosopher, and activist Jon Batiste by New York City-based director Bram VanderMark. Blending editorial moments with intimate personal insights, “We Are” provides a peek behind the curtain as Batiste discusses working on his latest album and walks the audience through four themes: Lineage, Authenticity, Excellence, and Evolution.
