Washington, DC 20036
The final film screening of Chopin. I am not Afraid of Darkness, includes Q&A session after the film
Film Synopsis: Three pianists prepare concerts in places associated with conflict and unimaginable suffering, where no one would expect to hear live music:
- Poland – Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau, former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp
- South Korea – on a bridge with the authoritarian North Korean border (DMZ)
- Lebanon – in Beirut city center
The film takes the viewer on a cinematic journey through these unique and sinister sceneries, while weaving together the stories of these outstanding musicians – one a Pole, another Korean, and the third a Syrian immigrant who is half Polish.
Chopin: I am not Afraid of Darkness received a 59th Golden Prague International Television Festival award in September 2022.
