When professional violinist and composer Romano Crivici persuades retired master violinmaker, Harry Vatiliotis, to make a last violin, a heart-warming story unfolds. Charalambos Vatiliotis, or Harry, is considered Australia's greatest living violin maker. He and his wife Maria came from Cyprus in the 1950s. Romano has known Harry for 48 years. Together they share the making of Romano's last violin, Harry's 800 hundredth and possibly his last too, as the ravages of old age take their toll on each of them.

Screening at A&I Hall, 3 Station Street Bangalow

“‘This enchanting film... it's a love story. It's a love story about music, a love story about the violin, it's a love story about you and this extraordinary instrument maker. But it's also a love story about Harry and Maria..."”
ABC Radio National

The second screening will be followed by a special concert with Roland Adeney on the violin featured in the film with Romano Crivici on piano.
