On the heels of capturing Best Picture awards in the Paris, London, Milan, and Rome film festivals, the “joyful and exuberant“ (JW Vibe) newly released and critically acclaimed family film “Knights of Swing” will touch your heart and transport you back to an unforgettable time in American history. 

The year is 1947, America is recovering from WWII, and the Civil Rights Movement is still years away. Big-band swing music is all the rage. Knights of Swing chronicles the adventures of a determined group of high school jazz musicians who recruit their reluctant science and math teacher, Mr. Miller, to help them form a “really swingin’ big band.” Things get complicated at Castle High when school administrators and community leaders object to the band’s diversity. Alliances form and lines are drawn. Through a soul-searching and uplifting journey of forgiveness and unconditional love, Knights of Swing illuminates the power of music.
