In 2007 America’s most famous and prolific living composer turns 70. The eyes and ears of the world will be drawn to contemplate and celebrate a remarkable career spanning the boundaries of opera, cinema and rock’n'roll.
Oscar-nominated director Scott Hicks (also an Emmy Award-winning documentarian) has been given unprecedented access to Glass, his friends, family and collaborators – including Woody Allen, Richard Gere and Ravi Shankar – as well as capturing the composer himself at work and at play.
From the excitement of World Premiere standing ovations and Coney Island Roller Coasters to the serenity of Nova Scotia shorelines and Buddhist meditation classes, the film captures the many diverse aspects of this great artist from an intimate perspective.
