The Man Behind the White Guitar will release in 2018.

This film is being created by a growing international collaboration of artists who believe in the power of music. Paul Liberatore,  journalist for Marin Independent Journal says José Neto is in service to music, not fame or money. He carries a spirit of loyalty, devotion and positive vision, a message we could all use in our world today.
