Following the Ninth: In the Footsteps of Beethoven's Final Symphony

Recently heralded by both Bill Moyers and NPR, this moving new film examines the life-changing legacy of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The work, a celebration of peace and harmony, had historic resonance for activists in Pinochet’s Chile, in Cold War East Berlin, and in China’s Tiananmen Square. And it continues to console and inspire hundreds of tsunami-shaken Japanese choristers who gather to sing the “Ode to Joy” every December. “[A] majestic sonic travelogue charting the inextricable relationship between music and the human experience…A documentary as ineffable and transformative in its reach as it sets out to be.” –Village Voice. Subtitles.
