Around the World in 80 Anthems

Posted by on in Documentary Feature

Details

In a riveting, heart-thumping and culturally-rich musical journey narrated by Daymond John, the founding member and philanthropist from the Emmy award-winning Shark Tank, this documentary follows 11 year-old Capri and her family through 80 countries where she sings the national anthem of each country in the national language to raise money and awareness for orphaned and abandoned children.
This nine month, lightening-paced and often very grueling journey melodiously weaves both people and cultures together from around the globe using their respective national anthems. The movie shows how Capri so closely connects to other children around the world through the power of anthems regardless of any and all language barriers.

Director: Gordon Michael Woolvett

From actor to writer to Dj to filmmaker, Gordon first stepped in front of the camera at age 12 in a movie with James Woods and Allan Arkin (Joshua Then and Now). Ever since he has lived and breathed film.

He trained at Theatre Aquarius and then began a long career of film and television through the 80’s and 90’s.

In the 2000’s He is known mostly from Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda on which he played a starship’s irrascible engineer (2000-2005); the same period when he won a Gemini as “Canada’s Hottest Star” (2002, 17th Annual). Figuring that was the pinnacle, Gordon moved behind the camera. On that show he began writing for prime time television and turned out 3 episodes of Andromeda. He moved into directing and has since produced/written and directed a number of works. His short Parkman, earned special selection at the BNFF (Buffalo Niagara Film Festival).

Gordon can still be found in front of the camera, most recently on episodes of izombie, but has a number of projects in the works and is focusing on directing. A feature documentary for 2017/2018 is in post production.
