Storyline

Maestro, tells the story of how a group of people found refuge and a call for life outside the mainstream. What evolved was a scene that set the ground work for what was to come in dance music culture worldwide, a rare insight into the secret underground world. It's the first time this story is told in a motion Picture, included in the film are pioneer dance music DJs and producers, "founding fathers", its center being Larry Levan, as well as high-profile DJs of today. Opting for a more personal and candid approach, MAESTRO shows the true history of the people through a realistic creative aesthetic. Tracing the underground's dance origin, MAESTRO brings out a real understanding of this intense lifestyle, and the lives they lived and died for. Written by Anonymous

Superb, watch if you have ever danced to the beat...
17 July 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Excellent bit of historical boogie fare. This film is superb, interviews with some of the biggest movers in the house-music scene over the last 20 years; well filmed, superb soundtrack (note to the makers - make it available, it would be essential listening for anyone who has ever danced in their lives).

I would recommend this film to anyone who has been to a nightclub in the last two decades, and would like to find out where and who the music came from, how where and why it happened, where it has been and where it may go. Full of insight, humour and joy.
