Free and open to the public.

During the 1950s and ’60s, Stravinsky became the most filmed composer of the 20th century. The subject of numerous European and North American documentaries, the composer’s notoriety was exploited widely by a television industry that embraced the arts as part of its cultural mission. This session will present clips from some of the more important film documentaries of the time.
