Shot in the Czech Republic, Martinu's Muse is a love letter to the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959).
In this short film Martinu's muse revisits his birth town Policka and shares some insights in the mind of this great Czech emigré composer. This own work earned us a First Place (Documentary section) at the 5th iPhone Film Festival. If you don't know Martinu's music yet, his six symphonies composed in America are a good place to start.
"This is wonderful!, I love it! Illustrates nicely the Martinu-esque Policka atmosphere, mingling with the IMC concert... bravo!"
"A short film which greatly assists understanding of Martinu as a gifted composer of beautiful music, and his intimate relationship with his homeland."
