“When the Chinese military invaded Tiananmen Square in 1989, the students there were playing it as their anthem of liberation,” Candaele notes on the film’s website. “In the same year, Leonard Bernstein conducted the Ninth at the Berlin Wall, where people were in the process of dismantling this symbol of oppression of the human will for freedom.” Featuring historical footage and contemporary interviews, the film is an insightful look at the meaning of a piece of music that goes well beyond some notes on a page.
