Following the Ninth

In the Footsteps of Beethoven's Final Symphony

Director: Kerry Candaele

2013   USA / Germany / UK / Austria / Chile / China / Japan / South Africa   78 mins.

In 1824, resolute in the face of his failing health, deafness and alienation from almost everyone, Beethoven managed to create an anthem of joy that embraces the transcendence of beauty over suffering. Filmed on 5 continents and in 12 countries, Following The Ninth is the story of four people whose lives have been transformed, repaired and healed by the 9th's message. At Tienanmen Square in 1989, students played the 9th over loudspeakers as the army came in to crush their protests for freedom. In Chile, women under the Pinochet dictatorship sang the 9th at torture prisons, and those inside took hope when they heard the music. In Japan each December, the 9th is performed hundreds of times, often with 10,000 people in the chorus. Part road trip, part adventure, Following The Ninth is a story about the power of music and human resilience in dark times.
