A career retrospective of Fishbone, an all African-American rock band from Los Angeles who created a high energy blend of funk, metal, ska, and punk and experienced a career as chaotic and unique as the music they created.

The title of the film comes from the J. D. Salinger novella, Seymour: An Introduction. See more »
People search for some answers, some stability, that will make them lead a happier life. It says in the Bible, "The help cometh from the Lord within." I call it a spiritual reservoir. I don't call it God. Most people don't tap that resource of the God within. What upsets me about religion is that the answers always seem to be apart from us in the form of the deity, and we depend on the deity for salvation. But I firmly believe that it's within us.

Seymour: an Introduction is one of the most touching films I've watched. The title character, Seymour, is charming beyond words. He is beautifully portrayed by Ethan Hawke. The film provides candid interviews with former students and notables of the world of classical music. Each glimpse of this master teacher brings the audience closer to seeing a natural-born teacher in his element. Seymour has mastered the art of inspiring his students to reach the beyond their limits to create the best music they can. Seymour himself seems to magically sprinkle fairy dust on every piano he touches! He is an inspiration to both pianists and non-pianists everywhere. This film will, hopefully, in time, become a classic.
