UKJF: The Maestro, In Search of the Last Music

Cinema

Directed by Alexandre Valenti | 2016 | France, Italy | Italian with English subtitles | 74mins | Suggested Certificate 15

At Barletta, a small town in southern Italy, a quiet but determined hero has brought to life an entire history of forgotten music.

For over twenty years, Francesco Lotoro, a professional pianist, has scoured Europe to discover and record music composed clandestinely in World War II camps. Aided by his wife and a handful of friends, he has archived over 4000 scores, including symphonies, operas, folk songs, liturgical works, and also swing and gypsy music. From Prague to Krakow, from Rome to Paris, this is the astonishing story of a race against oblivion, where each note sounds like a challenge to the oppressor.

Screening with Kitty’s Fortune

Directed by Adam Baroukh | 2016 | UK | Polish and German with English subtitles | 12mins

Based on the true story of Holocaust survivor Kitty Hart-Moxon, now 90, this is a harrowing account of her first night in Auscwitz-Birkenau.
