Notes & Reviews:
This is an extraordinary documentary about the Iranian composer Nader Mashayeki and the Tehran Symphony Orchestra. Filmmaker Frank Scheffer captures the passionate composer during rehearsals with young musicians in Teheran, wandering through a desolate desert landscape, looking for new inspirations for new compositions and challenging performances. The director chose beautiful shots in a contemplative setting in which Mashayeki reflects on his life and debates the meaning of music and poetry, and his impossible yet unscathed love for his country.Notes & Reviews:
