KQED Screening: Keeper of the Beat


Keeper of the Beat: A Woman’s Journey into the Heart of Drumming by David L. Brown, (Associate Producer – Heather Carawan) is an hour-long documentary filmed on four continents about the life and music of Barbara Borden, an acclaimed drummer, composer, teacher and peacemaker. The film tells the story, in eloquent words and toe-tapping music, of a woman whose love of drumming has given her courage and inspiration. Borden’s identity unfolds as she grows from a little girl in love with drumming to a world-class percussionist practicing “drumbeat diplomacy.” The film screens on KQED, Channel 9 in the San Francisco Bay Area on July 6th at 6:00 p.m.
