Alice: At Home with Alice Parker (USA 2020) is a documentary film produced by Heritage Film Project in association with Melodious Accord.[1]

The film is an intimate portrayal of composer and conductor Alice Parker by documentary filmmaker Eduardo Montes-Bradley.[2][3]

Filming took place during the Winter months of 2020 in Ms. Parker's home in Hawley, a 17th-century former community meeting hall nested in the hills of The Berkshires.

Alice premiered on October 8, 2020, by Chorus America[4] and is currently being distributed by Kanopy and Films for Change streaming platforms. The film was part of the Official Selection at the Virginia Film Festival[5][6]

Synopsis[edit]

Montes-Bradley focuses mainly on Alice Parker's collaborative work with Eudora Welty,[7] Emily Dickinson,[8] Archibald MacLeish while also making reference to her early prominence as protégé of conductor Robert Shaw.[9]

"Every shot of Parker’s gentle hands and gleaming eyes are proof of the connection Montes-Bradley found with her during this strange spring". Wisdom and love: A tribute to Alice Parker, C-Ville Weekly, Charlottesville, October 21, 2020.

Other aspects of the film reveal family connection such as the time the camera finds Alice and her daughter singing a cappella, or when Alice from the kitchen of her home talks about making bread or her convictions about race and poverty in America.[10]
