The Sedona Film Festival presents “New Worlds: The Cradle of Civilization” on February 3 – Sedona.Biz
Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join theaters around the world in hosting “New Worlds: Cradle of Civilization” on Thursday, Feb. 3 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theater.
The documentary film-concert “New Worlds: The Cradle of Civilization” – which is part of the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival 2021 – is the last performance in Athens of Bill Murray and Jan Vogler’s performance during their European tour.
On a glorious Greek night, screen legend Bill Murray and world-renowned cellist Jan Vogler rock the Acropolis with a timeless blend of poetry and music. Captured on film by director Andrew Muscato, Murray and Vogler are joined by the dazzling Mira Wang (violin) and dynamic Vanessa Perez (piano).
The international quartet enchants Athenian audiences from the 2,000-year-old stage of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, overlooking the city of Athens, with musical reflections on love, hope and grief.
The film was edited under the supervision of Bill Murray and the captivating 5.1 soundtrack was mixed under the direction of Jan Vogler.
Spanning from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story, the hugely entertaining, humorous and deeply touching program is imbued with the unique charm of Bill Murray.
