Crescendo is a short film that recounts the struggles of Maria Magdalena Beethoven, the mother of 19th century composer Ludwig van Beethoven. Producer Jason Jones will host an informal discussion and field questions from the audience.
Crescendo debuted worldwide in February, receiving more than 11 international film festival honors. The screening comes to Houston to continue the Movie to Movement mission by supporting LifeHouse of Houston, a maternity home licensed by the State of Texas to house girls' as young as 12 years old who have not yet committed to placing their babies for adoption.
All proceeds from the screening will benefit LifeHouse.
