Dir. Pere Portabella, Spain, 2007, 102 min.

Two Spanish truck drivers discuss Bach’s music as they traverse on the road. A group of cellists play rapturous Bach on a subway car they appear to have taken over. A player piano moves seemingly of its own accord through a bare art gallery. Bach’s music and influence are explored through this unconventional biopic, crisscrossing the continent from Spain to Germany by way of various travelers, their harmonies and rhythms.

Thursday, October 25, 7:30 p.m. Jepson Hall, Room 118
