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.”
