June 30 & July 1, 2018
Using letters Anna Magdalena Bach wrote to her husband, seminar composer Johann Sebastian, filmmakers Jean-Marie Straub and Daniele Huillet created one of the most precise, rewarding biopics ever made. Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach's intense emotional pull can be understood by its status as a musical film in the most thorough sense. Its performances - staged as extended sequences set within the very spaces once occupied by Bach himself, with trained performers donning and playing items accurate to the periods - are immense, bringing us closer to the sound than was ever thought possible. Immaculately restored on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach invites viewers to experience a bygone age.
