Post Screening Q&A with Director Kerry Candaele!
“Thrilling…smartly assembled and gracefully paced.” — New York Times
“The film is 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
“Each anecdote builds upon the next to create that rarest of films: a documentary as ineffable and transformative in its reach as it sets out to be.”–Village Voice
FOLLOWING THE NINTH tells the story of people whose lives have been transformed, repaired and healed by Beethoven’s Ninth message: Alle Menschen werden Bruder (All People Are Brothers) Director Kerry Candaele follows the artistic, cultural, and political impact of the Ninth across five continents and ten countries, from Tiananmen Square to the Berlin Wall to the prisons of Pinochet’s Chile and the townships of South Africa, tracing the ways in which its grand, soaring melody and inspiring words of peace, tolerance, and love have sustained hope in a manner that few works of art have ever achieved. Dir: Kerry Candaele – 2013 – 85 Minutes
