In the suburbs of a city still reeling from race riots, a Cleveland Orchestra cellist clashes with his artist wife over whether their son should be schooled in an integrated inner-city public school.
Double-Stop was presented at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival as a special event outside of competition. It was screened at a number of venues before the Festival came to a sudden halt due to power outages as the famous cultural revolution of 1968 caused strikes that rippled outward from Paris.
Cleveland brothers Roger and Gerry Sindell, direct this 1968 classic which is an exciting melange of entertainment, social message and exhibition of the impact of the irrationality of a big city.

Djuna has been making movies since she was a little kid and later learned to animate from her students at Stivers in Dayton, Ohio. She began creating the beginnings of Falling Up over four years ago while studying in Belgium. But she was truly set in motion after a series of stifling commercial animation gigs in NYC, whereupon she decided she could no longer look at pixels on a screenstop-motion would be her salvation.
