Yo-Yo Ma: Inspired by Bach - Sarabande

A missed limousine; a masterclass; a doctor's office; a recital. Inspired by the moods and emotions of Bach's 'Suite No. 4', Sarabande is a dramatic film written and directed by feature film director Atom Egoyan ('Felicia's Journey', 'The Sweet Hereafter'). The film weaves together numerous stories in a series of coincidences intimating themes of generosity and exchange. The film examines the effect of music on the everyday lives of the characters and the value of music to healing, especially in relation to the Bach cello suites.
