[VIDEO] Interview with filmmaker Daniel Landau



This winter, UMS is presenting a 10-week, 10-event ‘renegade’ series focusing on thought-leaders and game-changers in the performing arts. Hamburg Symphony Orchestra on January 29 is the next performance in the series.

Olivier Messiaen’s Des canyons aux ├ętoiles (From the Canyons to the Stars), commissioned to commemorate America’s bicentennial, was inspired the by the American West. Conductor Jeffrey Tate and the Hamburg Symphony, in collaboration with Israeli filmmaker Daniel Landau, bring the piece alive in a new cinematic installation, where images of man’s impact on the environment create a counterpoint to sounds of untouched nature.

UMS video producer and filmmaker Sophia Kruz interviewed Daniel Landau over Skype.
