Tom Santopietro

Beginning with fascinating behind-the-scenes stories of the filming in Salzburg and the intriguing casting decisions that informed the film, acclaimed author Tom Santopietro ( the New York Times Editor’s Choice), will mix film clips and his work as a film historian to analyze why The Sound of Music remains beloved by multiple generations the world over, and what its extraordinary hold on audiences tells us about our lives in the 21st century.
