FOLLOWING THE NINTH: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BEETHOVEN’S FINAL SYMPHONY
The award-winning documentary film about the global impact of Beethoven’s final symphony. Written in 1824, near the end of Beethoven’s life, the Ninth Symphony was composed by a man who was suffering from poor health, alienated from those around him, and completely deaf. And yet, despite this, he managed to create an anthem of joy that embraces the transcendence of beauty over suffering.
Celebrated to this day for its ability to heal, repair, and bring people together across great divides, the Ninth has become an anthem of hope and liberation that has inspired many around the world.
