Evenings with a Filmmaker: Michael House
December 12 @ 19 h 30 min - 21 h 00 min
Michael House will introduce his latest documentary film Braille Music, a film shot over three years which features an all blind cast. The film follows six blind professional musicians who come together in a London recording studio to create a musical tribute to Louis Braille. Braille Music examines Louis Braille’s musical life and how Braille’s reading and writing system continues to be used, nearly 200 years after its invention, by blind musicians and composers today.
Michael is an American filmmaker and composer who resides in France. Since 2008 his documentaries have been broadcast in more than twenty countries and screened in the world’s leading film festivals such as Telluride International Film Festival and London BFI Film Festival. He served on the jury of Montréal’s Festival International du film sur l’art in 2013. In 2014, House‘s film Revealing Mr. Maugham was chosen by Monocle Magazine as one of the five must-see films of the year.
