The Tchaikovsky Files - Confessions of a Composer

This documentary brings the Russian composer to the present – radically. Based on Tchaikovsky‘s diaries and letters, director Ralf Pleger discovers an entirely new side and sketches an entirely different profile of the man whose mind and talent brought us Swan Lake. The film focuses on what it meant for Tchaikovsky, a homosexual man, to have to live his life in a homophobic environment - considerations that are all the more relevant and topical in light of recent developments in Putin‘s Russia. Including very personal and intimate interviews with Vladimir Malahkov and eccentric organist Cameron Carpenter. The release has been chosen for the longlist of the renowned German award 'Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik'. Produced by Gebrüder Beetz Filmproduktion
