Stravinsky: Once at a Border...

Awarded the Special Jury Prize at the San Francisco Film Festival, this autobiographical film about one of the most important and influential composers of the 20th century includes documents, photographs and previously unseen film.

Featuring 'Les Noces' and 'Petrushka' and finally, priceless footage of Stravinsky himself.
