SEARCHING FOR THE LAST MUSIC
a film by
FOR CINEMA AND TELEVISION
"a tribute to life and love for music"
"a story of people who chose music as an act of resistance"
"it will be like freeing music from imprisonment camps"
As if in a “road movie”, we follow the Maestro who, like a modern Sherlock Holmes, guided by his intuition and by the clues he gathers, sets off on journeys with uncertain outcomes, alternating surprises and disappointments, discoveries and intense encounters. From the flea market of Prague, to the archives of camps; from the attics of the heirs of composers, to within the collections of museums, all over Europe, America and the East, to recover, decipher, classify and archive a heritage of mankind that has been forgotten for 70 years: the music composed in Second World War concentration camps
