Exit: Music

Directed by James Murdoch

Canada, Germany, Israel, US | 82 minutes | 2017

In the year 1933, Germany was the vibrant and diverse center of the musical world, but like so many things that occurred with the rise of the Third Reich, music was hijacked for propaganda purposes. Thousands of musicians were forced to flee Europe, and Exit: Music focuses on five composers whose work had all but disappeared as a result. Today, their stories are told by family members and biographers along rare archival footage and commentary from experts. Most importantly, their lost compositions are now performed by the ARC Ensemble (Artists of the Royal Conservatory), who have spent the last decade restoring their unknown masterpieces to the repertoire.

Featuring a special live performance by the Amernet String Quartet, Ensemble-in-Residence at FIU.

Subject of the film and ARC Ensemble's Artistic Director, Simon Wynberg, will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in an extended conversation afterwards.
