WE ARE: A Visual Mission Statement from Jon Batiste

A musical short film blending editorial moments with vulnerable interviews, “WE ARE” peeks behind the curtain at pianist, band leader, philosopher, and activist Jon Batiste’s highly anticipated album, WE ARE, as he walks the audience through four themes: Lineage, Authenticity, Excellence, and Evolution. Jon has recently won an Oscar for his work in scoring Pixar’s “Soul,” and has also been nominated for Golden Globe, Grammy, BAFTA, and Emmy awards.

Director’s Vision

It’s a true honor to work with an artist as prolific and brilliant as Jon… I am humbled by his genuine spirit, his commitment to excellence in his craft, and his infectious energy and presence.
