Synopsis

BEST PORTRAIT PRIZE WINNER

North American Premiere – Pierre-Olivier Bardet in attendance, CEO and producer of Idéale Audience

Spotlight: Music. Tribute to Idéale Audience. Violoncellist Mstislav Rostropovich, a celebrity of the music world since the 1950s, left the USSR in 1972. An advocate of Solzhenitsyn before he would be deported for publishing The Gulag Archipelago, he established himself in Paris, and then Washington, after getting his citizenship revoked by Soviet authorities. This new film by Bruno Monsaingeon evokes this out of the ordinary journey pieced together through rare archived footage and testimonies from his family and friends.
