University Forum: Following the Ninth
The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum lecture series presents Following the Ninth: In the Footsteps of Beethoven's Final Symphony a talk by Kerry Candaele, Director of the Beethoven | Hero documentary film trilogy, and Greg Blake Miller, Visiting Assistant Professor of Journalism and Narrative Media, UNLV.
Celebrated for its ability to heal, repair, and bring people together across great divides, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony has become an anthem of liberation and hope around the world.
Kerry Candaele’s documentary film Following the Ninth traces the extraordinary impact of the Ninth, taking us on journeys to the Berlin Wall, Pinochet’s Chile, China’s Tiananmen Square, and Japan in the wake of the 2011 tsunami.
Mr. Candaele and Professor Miller will host a discussion after the film.
“The film is beautiful and powerful.”
