The harrowing themes of Christopher Nupen's WE WANT THE LIGHT (principally revolving around Nazi concentration camps) lead to a highly moving film, as presented here. With some stunning musical contributions form performers such as Pinchas Zuckerman, Daniel Barenboim, Zubin Mehta, and many others, this lauded feature is a shocking and powerful piece of work.
Description by Kultur Films:
This is a DVD about many things. It is about freedom and captivity, about emancipation, acculturation and assimilation; it is about the roles played by Moses and Felix Mendelssohn in the dream of fruitful, unproblematic integration of the Jews into German society after their liberation from the ghettos; it is about Richard Wagner and his influence on the thinking of the Third Reich but, most of all, it is a DVD about how much music can mean to people particularly in the direst circumstances. The title is taken from a poem by a 12-year-old girl, Eva Pickova, written in the Theresienstadt concentration camp.
