Film Screening: The Tree of Ecstasy and Unbearable Sadness

FREE EVENT - BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL: 'The Tree of Ecstasy and Unbearable Sadness' is a groundbreaking, large-scale inter-modal project weaving together the worlds of literature, music and visual art in the poignant story of one boy’s journey into mental illness. A lifetime in the making and five years in the creating, this astonishing new work by award-winning artist/author/composer Matt Ottley is a magnum opus in every conceivable way.

The film invites viewers to slow down, reflect, and to immerse themselves in a world of beauty and wonder.

At the heart of the film is a 50-minute orchestral work performed by the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, the Czech Philharmonic Choir Brno and tenor Ben Reynolds. The music has been written/orchestrated by Matt Ottley with guest composition by Alf Demasi.

Introduced by Jennie Orchard, and a Q&A with Matt Ottley by Sarah Dyson following the film.

This is a public event open to the whole community.
