Classical Arts Film Festival: FILM BLOCK ONE
The event begins with two very special documentary films, each having a unique approach to the celebration of the arts as well as an insight into the passion that drives individuals to pursue an arts profession.
CARVING THE DIVINE
Directed and Produced by Yujiro Seki
The documentary Carving the Divine offers a rare and intimate look into the life and artistic process of modern-day Busshi practitioners of a 1400 year lineage of woodcarving thats at the heart of Japanese, Mahayana Buddhism.
PLAYING WITH FIRE - Jeannette Sorrell and the Mysteries of Conducting
Directed by Allan Miller
Produced by Allan Miller & Gina Maria Leonetti
Jeannette Sorrell, told by the Juilliard School and the Cleveland Orchestra that no one will hire a woman conductor, forms her own Baroque orchestra, Apollos Fire, to immediate acclaim. This is the first film that shows how a conductor converts the dots on a printed score into musical phrases she can hear, and how the musicians almost miraculously transform her expressive gestures into an exciting performance.
There will be a gala reception during the intermission between both films.
