Throw Down Your Heart

A film by Sascha Paladino

“An exhilarating feast of sight and sound.” —LA Times

Throw Down Your Heart follows American banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck on his journey to Africa to explore the little known African roots of the banjo and record an album. It’s a boundary-breaking musical adventure that celebrates the beauty and complexity of Africa — an Africa that is very different from what is often seen in the media today.
