Summary
The filmmaker of Chopin's Afterlife is a pianist who explores the ways Chopin's music seems to connect people everywhere. The director, Ophra Yerushalmi, for whom Chopin has been a constant source of inspiration, is joined by musicians and non-musicians, dancers, poets and visual artists. They are young and old, masters and students, all with special affinity to the composer. Together they investigate different layers hidden under the seeming simplicity of the music and its sheer beauty. Among those participating are composers Lukas Foss and John Eaton, pianists Abbey Simon, Arie Vardi and Frederic Chiu, as well as Jerome Lowenthal and Pavlina Dokovska of the Julliard and Mannes schools of music. Also included are two rare solo dances choreographed by José Lim?n and Jerome Robbins, danced by Carla Maxwell and Helgi Tomasson. Chopin's Afterlife shows a surprising variety of ways in which Chopin remains meaningful in our contemporary world, so different from Chopin's own. The film is an attempt to create a bridge between the "romantic" and the "revolutionary" Chopin and to challenge viewers to look at Chopin in new ways
