Aroview: Cellist Yo-Yo Ma’s celebrated musical exploration of Bach’s enigmatic solo cello suites, prompted six films, attempting to complement the musical interpretation with various visual ideas.
Suite No. 3, "Falling Down Stairs" describes the composition of an accompanying dance by choreographer Mark Morris.
Suite No. 4, "Sarabande", perhaps the best-known in the series, sees dir. Egoyan exploring the empathic relationship between the performer and his audience.
