Talent Has Hunger is an inspiring film about the power of music to consume, enhance, and propel lives. Filmed over 7 years, the film is a window into the mysterious world of the artist, the passion that can grip and sustain a young player from childhood through the last days of life and the years of sacrifice and dedication a budding artist needs to fulfill one’s talent. The film focuses on the challenges of guiding gifted young people through the struggles of mastering the cello. Through the words and actions of master cello teacher, Paul Katz, it’s clear that this deep study of music not only prepares wonderful musicians, but builds self-esteem and a cultural and aesthetic character that will be profoundly important throughout his students’ lives.

"Fabulous - full of wisdom, warmth and compassion. [The film] captures that rare magical process of a master teacher at work that made me feel he was not just teaching cello students...it was a lesson to all of us."
- Yo-Yo Ma

"Beautiful! It shows that great teachers are the rarest, most precious, and, yes, the most gifted among all of us." - Emanuel Ax
