“’State of the Unity’ offers an abundance of empathy and compassion. However, what I also appreciated about ‘State of the Unity’ is its honesty.” — The Independent Critic

Is unity possible? This simple question launched the Brooklyn-based band The
Bergamot on a quest to all 50 States to unite people with music, community, and
collaboration. What began as a simple idea in the band’s touring vehicle, brought about
a profound revelation. How do we reframe the way we perceive and understand unity?
For it is not a shared narrative of a future, but a narrative of a shared future, that can
unite us together; says David Hooker Ph.D. How the duo connected people, with that
exact vehicle they were sitting in, started a conversation that continues to this day. Join
them in this timely 50,000-mile tour in human understanding, perseverance, and
empathy that changed their lives forever.

**Stay after our 4pm screening for a special post-screening Q&A with
award-winning Directors Nathaniel Paul Hoff & Jillian Speece. Additionally, The
Bergamot will perform two acoustic songs from the score after the Q&A wraps
