The Wagner Files
Available on iTunes
"The Wagner Files" is an innovative and dynamic fusion of music documentary, fictional film and animated cartoon, portraying Wagner's turbulent life on the run. It takes a bold and in-depth approach to Wagner’s life, linking his character to the overwhelming music he created. His life is a big opera, his character extreme: he’s excessive, egomaniac and a lawless anarchistic. But it isn’t until Wagner meets his accomplice and second wife Cosima that he becomes what he is known for. The film uses the storytelling devices and style of a modern crime-scene-investigation series. High quality fictional scenes mixed with animations and interviews with leading Wagner experts.
Starring Samuel Finzi, Pegah Ferydoni, Laurence Dreyfus
