Arvo Pärt  was born in Estonia in 1935, in a small town called Paide, and knew early that his life would be devoted to music. Although his first compositions were of a neoclassical style, he soon started experimenting with modern techniques. Today Arvo Pärt is the most celebrated and inspiring living composer of our time. Film shows his intense collaboration with the Cello Octet Amsterdam and sheds a bright light on Pärt’s universe. Because composer influence not only at classical musicians like Tõnu Kaljuste, Candida Thompson or Daniel Reuss, but also by choreographers like Jiří Kylián, filmmakers like Alain Gomis or even young techno musicians like Kara-Lis Coverdale.

Paul Hegeman is a director, screenwriter and producer from Netherland. After his French and Philosophy study he was working as a French teacher. He has now already made hundreds of films and programs for among others like the VPRO, NPS, VARA, AVRO, NCRV and Arte. In addition, he worked for more than 25 years as a journalist and in particular for Elsevier, HP/De Tijd and the VPRO Gids in which he wrote a weekly article about cinema in all its facets.
