Satisfying documentary
11 February 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is a satisfying documentary about the life of John Psathas, composer and lecturer at the New Zealand School of Music in Wellington. It was filmed in Greece and New Zealand. John outlines his early school days, his introspective teenage years, discovery of music and current family life. He describes the hardship for his family coming to NZ from Greece. Geoffrey Cawthorn writes, direct and produces the aptly-named Sound and Fury: John Psathas. I found myself hooked into John's story as he opened up and revealed his past and current family life. We also hear from his father and mother, with scenes both in NZ and in Greece. At one point, reflecting on his life so far, John says that he wouldn't have done as much intellectually if he hadn't been brought up in New Zealand. With some excerpts from NZSO concert performances, the documentary satisfies musically as well as the story does emotionally. Recommended.
