41th FIFA – Best Portrait!
“Music under the Swastika – The Maestro and the Cellist of Auschwitz”
was awarded the Prize for Best Portrait at this year’s International Festival of Films on Art.
This is what the jury said:
“A necessary film that questions the past while shedding light on our times. A double portrait of musical figures under the Nazi regime. An update thanks to the colorization of exceptional archives. A demonstration of the universal power of music that recontextualizes the unavoidable question of the impossible separation of the work and the artist.”
