Filmmaker Rebecca Tansley and the subject of her documentary film Crossing Rachmaninoff, Flavio Vallani, join Wallace to talk about the journey they took back to Vallani’s homeland of Italy.

The film documents Vallani’s struggle with his father who was unable to accept that his son was gay or that he could ever make a living playing the piano.
