  • From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China

    1980. USA. Directed by Murray Lerner. At the end of the Cultural Revolution in 1979, China reopened its doors to the West (and Western ideas). As part of this renewed openness, the Chinese government invited renowned violinist Isaac Stern to perform with the China Central Symphony. The film follows Stern during rehearsals, performances, and student lectures, gradually revealing the personal and political impact of this groundbreaking cultural exchange. 84 min.
