Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts Showtimes and Tickets
Release Date: 2008-04-18
Duration: 1hr 55min
In July 2005, filmmaker Scott Hicks started shooting a documentary about the composer Philip Glass to celebrate his 70th anniversary in 2007. Over the next 18 months, Scott followed Philip across three continents - from his annual ride on the Coney Island "Cyclone" roller coaster, to the world premiere of his new opera in Germany and in performance with a didgeridoo virtuoso in Australia. Allowed unprecedented access to Glass' working process, family life, spiritual teachers and long time collaborators, Hicks gives us a unique glimpse behind the curtain into the life of a surprising and complex man. "GLASS: a portrait of Philip in twelve parts" is a remarkable mosaic portrait of one of the greatest - and at times controversial - artists of this or any era.
