Native American Flute Master R. Carlos Nakai reflects upon the relationship between prayer and music in his work.

Director's Statement

The music of R. Carlos Nakai filled the office of our edit suite for months and had become a primary soundtrack of my life. I wanted to know more about the man creating this evocative music and reached out to see if he would be willing to hang out with us and a camera for a couple of days and see what came of it. Meeting him and capturing this little slice of his life was a special moment in my life.
