Stravinsky: Once At A Border

More Views

This autobiographical film about the most important and influential composer of the 20th century includes documents, photographs and film never seen publicly before. The film is narrated in Stravinsky’s own voice as he looks back on a fascinating life and career as well as through interviews with his three surviving children as they reflect on their father. There are contributions from the late Madame Vera Stravinsky, his musical associate Robert Craft, Marie Rambert, Balanchine, Jean Cocteau, Diaghilev's secretary, Kyra Nijinsky, Nadia Boulanger and many friends and colleagues. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the san Francisco Film Festival, this film paints a complete and compassionate portrait of Stravinsky and his music.
Included in the film are:
  • Les Noces, heard here for the first time in its original scoring, and Petroushka, specially recreated for the film by the Bolshoi in its 1911 choreography.
  • Thrilling ballet performances (The Firebird, The Rite of Spring)
  • Charming footage of Stravinsky in old age
