Drumming on a plastic compound bucket, fifteen year old Larry Wright creates unique fusions of rock, jazz, Latin, hip hop and African rhythms unlike anything heard before.
In LARRY WRIGHT, his mother shares her hope for Larry to escape their rough neighborhood, and her pride at his acceptance into New York's prestigious High School for the Performing Arts. Soon after this documentary, Larry was chosen to appear in the hit feature GREEN CARD and in t.v. ads for Levi's jeans.
Driven by his unrelenting beat, LARRY WRIGHT chronicles the life of a very special young musician as he amazes crowds around New York City.
"Larry Wright gets more music out from a five-gallon plastic bucket than some drummers get from a real kit - especially at age 15... You see joy on Larry's face when he plays and you feel joy when you watch and listen to him. Recommended."—Library Journal
"This is an inspiring film sure to interest older children and young adults... imaginatively showcases an incredible talent and personal triumph."—Voice of Youth Advocates
"This film suggests one of the most astonishing things about talent is that it can come, seemingly, out of nowhere; or perhaps what we in our ignorance and complacency dismiss as nowhere."—Los Angeles Times
