Zimbelism (2017)

A musical documentary about composer Charles Fox, known for pop hits such as “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” “I Got A Name” and “Ready To Take A Chance Again” as well as numerous iconic television show themes and internationally beloved salsa music. The film follows Fox’s life and career from the streets of the Bronx, to his education at the Fontainbleau music conservatory near Paris, and finally to Havana, Cuba where Fox “returns to his musical roots.” Witness some of the most phenomenal live music one will ever experience, featuring Anne Sila (winner of French version of The Voice), Common, A.J. Croce (son of the legendary Jim Croce), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Barry), Paul Williams (Academy award winning composer), Rita Wilson (Actor, Producer), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld, and Tony Award winner), Alexandre Desplat (Academy award winner) and Alain Boublil (Les Miserable; Miss Saigon), the film is joyous, funny, poignant and above all intimate.
