The Man Behind the White Guitar was released to international film festivals on Valentine’s Day, 2019, as a message of peace and love. In March the film screened in Guiting Power, UK with a warm reception. Currently we are raising funds to have the film translated into Spanish and Portuguese. If you can help with funding, please contact us.

This film has been created by a very generous international collaboration of artists who believe in the power of world music to unite us. Paul Liberatore,  music journalist, says “José Neto is in service to music, not fame or money.”

Neto’s supporters know he carries a high level spirit of loyalty, devotion and positive vision, inspiration we could all use in our world today.
