De oogst van de stilte

Documentary, 1995, 80 min.

Documentary about the influence of the Cultural Revolution on music and everyday life in China. It focuses on five composers who, brought up during Mao's Cultural Revolution, only in the seventies came into contact with Western classical music that had been labelled anti-revolutionary. In 1979 the five were among the limited number of lucky souls admitted to the newly re-openened conservatoire in Peking. After their studies, four of the five composers moved to the West where they slowly made their name on concert platforms. In the wake of the composers, the film jumps back and forth between their home country and their current homes in New York and Paris.
