Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Bernard Haitink, Mahler conducter, dies
« Last post by Iain Fisher on October 23, 2021, 09:50:18 PM »
The music on Ken's Mahler was conducted by Bernard Haitink. I saw Haitink conduct many times and he was one of the great conductors.  He was with the Dutch Concertgebouworkest for 65 (!) years, his first concert in 1939 (from NRC.NL 22 Oct 2021).  He was also conductor of the London Philharmonic from 1967- 1979 and the Royal Opera House London from 1987-2002.

He died on 21 Oct 2021 aged 92.  He will be missed and I will be playing all my Haitink CDs to remember him.  The image below is from the credits of Mahler

"The great South African playwright’s meditation on education and its role in the struggle for justice, along with its sad limits in a culture of oppression and bigotry. In an Eastern Cape Karoo town in South Africa in 1984, devoted teacher Mr. M seeks to provide a future for his prize pupil Thami by forming a debate team with a bright student from the local white school, Isabel. But Mr. M’s hopes for Thami are challenged by their generational divide and the political violence brewing outside the classroom."

Hi,

Sorry it appears an early draft version has somehow crept in.  I have tried to find the real version but no success.  I will recreate the page, but it might take a few weeks. If you have any specific questions happy to try and answer.

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Podcast on The Devils
« Last post by Iain Fisher on October 21, 2021, 09:59:38 PM »
The Losers' Club: A Stephen King Podcast presents a 30 minute discussion with Gretchen Felker-Martin on The Devils "A story about human fragility and the beauty of human frailty".

Good to hear people genuinely appreciating the film- like an idiosyncratic discussion between friends.

Thank you. I have the film in German Language. The uality is good, but I'm still looking for better quality of this beautiful Film. The owner of "The Road to Mecca" is Video Vision and Distant Horizon. The film is also located there as a 35mm Negative in the archive. I'm just trying everything to get you to release this film on Blu-Ray. I think if many write to these companies and ask for a Blu-Ray publication, maybe it will be published after all.
