Description

A pairing of two films - A short film entitled, 'Mr. Bernstein' followed by the feature-length film, 'The Maestro: In Search Of The Last Music'. MR. BERNSTEIN Francine Zuckerman | Short, Drama | 12 min | New Zealand | 2016 As a child in Auckland, New Zealand, Debbie heard about her fathers transformative experience hearing the great Leonard Bernstein perform Gershwin at a Displaced Persons camp. Years later she gets to meet the maestro herself. THE MAESTRO: IN SEARCH OF THE LAST MUSIC Alexandre Valenti | Documentary | 74 Min | France, Italy | 2016 | English, Hebrew, French, Italian with English subtitles At Barletta, a small town in southern Italy, a quiet but determined hero has brought to life an entire history of forgotten music. For over twenty years, Francesco Lotoro, a professional pianist, has scoured Europe to discover and record music composed clandestinely in World War II camps. Aided by his wife and a handful of friends, he has archived over 4000 scores, including symphonies, operas, folk songs, liturgical works, and also swing and gypsy music. From Prague to Krakow, from Rome to Paris, this is the astonishing story of a race against oblivion, where each note sounds like a challenge to the oppressor.
