Following the story of an African-American couple struggling with COVID-19 and their journey from despair to hope, “Cantata for a More Hopeful Tomorrow” is a short music film that beautifully, powerfully weaves together a new choral work by composer Damien Geter with an emotionally evocative and poignant film created by Emmy award winning filmmaker Bob Berg.
