Fans of the great American minimalist composer will cherish this documentary, but Philip Glass’ life is one that will appeal to a far wider audience.
The director of the acclaimed David Helfgott biopic ‘Shine’, Scott Hicks embarked on a documentary to celebrate Glass’ 70th birthday. It took 18 months to film but now stands as a lasting record and celebration of the composer and his remarkable life.
Filmed across three continents, capturing Glass at work on various projects, Hick’s film is a compelling exploration of a deeply spiritual and constantly productive artist.
