Killing Me Softly With His Songs

KILLING ME SOFTLY WITH HIS SONGS is a documentary about iconic composer Charles Fox (“I Got A Name”, “Ready To Take A Chance Again,” “Killing Me Softly With His Song” and numerous television theme songs) — but it is so much more than that. This film is a joyous celebration of music — most especially live music, and its power to connect people and bridge cultures. This smoking hot musical feast will make you want to dance.

In addition to the extraordinary live performances shot in concert halls, jazz clubs, and home settings, by luminaries like Jason Alexander, Barenaked Ladies, Alain Boublil, Common, A.J. Croce, Alexandre Desplat, Roberta Flack, Anne Sila, Diane Warren, Donald Webber, Jr, Paul Williams, Rita Wilson and Henry Winkler, KILLING ME SOFTLY WITH HIS SONGS follows Fox’s fascinating life from the Bronx to Paris, Hollywood and Havana, all of which unfolds through intimate conversations and personal anecdotes that run the gamut from hilarious to heartbreaking.
