Dir. Lee Gingold / UK / 2010

Louis Armstrong gave the world songs full of hope.

Music Matters is a collective of people across the music industry, including artists, retailers, songwriters, labels and managers, formed to remind listeners of the significance and value of music.

Words from the filmmaker:
"Music has been my closest ally for as long as I can remember. When none of my friends cared to hear about my messy prolonged break ups any more, Jeff Buckley still listened. More importantly he still spoke to me, even though he was dead. Similarly, Louis Armstrong and I are best friends now despite the fact that neither of us was ever alive at the same time. Thanks to his music he means more to me than most of my 'friends' on Facebook. I feel I know more about his history than that of my own family and the way he blows that horn makes me feel as though he understands me better than I understand myself.

I felt that these sentiments were perhaps a bit much for the purposes of my animated film. Instead I focused on Louis' essence as conveyed through his own words. The text in my short film is taken from Louis introduction 'What A Wonderful World' for a live recording of the song."
