The Devil and the Angel, “has it all…fast cars, guns, explosions, tragedy, joy, comedy, tears, love… violins,” according to the filmmakers. “We were amazed and delighted at the stunning quality of this student film, which uses creative lighting and unusual filmic techniques to create an emotional attachment to the artist, bringing the audience clearly into the passion he has for his craft,” said Phil Tuckett, Artistic Director for DOCUTAH™, associate professor at Dixie State University and the Director of DSU Films.
The violin has been referred to as the ‘devil’s instrument. Throughout history, violin players and makers were rumored to have sold their souls to the devil in order to master their craft. Despite this reputation, Master craftsman, Kevin Lee, sets out to prove otherwise from his rustic workshop in Southern Utah. Known as a Master Luthier, Kevin follows in the footsteps of the famous violin makers from hundreds of years ago, since the first violins were created. For music-lovers and musicians alike, as well as those who have never considered where a violin comes from, this film takes the world on a journey through the mystery, the fantasy, the passion, the madness, and the romanticism of a Master Luthier and his love affair with an angel, the “devil’s instrument”.
