Canadian International Documentary Festival announced its 2015 lineup. Some of the music-themed films:
– Around the World in 50 Concerts. A Dutch doc on Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra’s 125th anniversary world tour. Making an exciting doc about an orchestra is not an easy job, will this one succeed? The description looks promising. The trailer too. Also, there will be Mariss Jansons.
– Music Lessons goes behind the scenes of the Toronto chapter of El Sistema. The screening will be followed by a performance by the Sistema Toronto Yorkwoods Orchestra.
– Shoulder the Lion is a ‘bold visual essay‘ about artistic creation re-calibrating against the decaying physical prowess. About a painter, a photographer and a musician.
– What Happened, Miss Simone? A biodoc about Nina Simone. Enough said.
