Film makers Margie Friedman and Barbara Multer-Wellin have completed their documentation of the Me2/ story. They spent nearly two years with us and have hundreds of hours of footage.

During site visits in Boston and Burlington, the film crew captured footage of each orchestra rehearsing and interviewed many musicians. Several of the musicians living with mental illness allowed the film crew to come to their homes and hear their stories. The crew also spent time interviewing Me2/ co-founders Ronald Braunstein and Caroline Whiddon, digging deep into their personal and professional histories.

They joined us in June 2017 to film a concert featuring both the Me2/Orchestras (Burlington, VT and Boston, MA) performing side-by-side at the Flynn Center in Vermont. This concert was the culmination of filming for the documentary.

The footage is now in the editing process.
