8. Sun Apr 20 - FOLLOWING THE NINTH: In the Footsteps of Beethoven’s Final Symphony – 1 hr 20 min – Not Rated. This documentary film takes us on a cinematic journey across five continents and into the heart and soul of one of the world’s greatest works of art. Directed by Kerry Candaele, the film shows how Beethoven’s stirring music played a hugely supportive role as people expressed their profound desires for personal and political freedom. The Ninth buoyed the protesters in Tiananmen Square and provided solace to those struggling for freedom in Pinochet’s Chile. When the Berlin Wall came down, Leonard Bernstein performed the symphony as an “Ode To Freedom.” In Japan, the symphony, performed hundreds of times by amateur groups, took on special significance in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Following the Ninth is a cinematic celebration of the most profound musical testament to tolerance, peace and connection across all borders the world has shared for centuries. “Thrilling...smartly assembled and gracefully paced.” –Daniel Gold, N.Y. Times. “Beautiful and powerful...If millions could experience its affirming and incandescent message, we might turn around the destructive dynamics that are overwhelming the earth.” –Bill Moyers.
