The documentary V. Silvestrov, dedicated to the brilliant Ukrainian composer, is far from a traditional biopic about a prominent person. It is an observation, a confession, and most of all, a story of great talent set against the backdrop of uncertain times. Of course, film authors pay tribute to the composer’s creative techniques: the avantgarde of the 1960s, forced into underground during the time of Socialist realism, postmodernism (his main obsession during the 1970s), metaphorical music, and contemporary pieces that charm audiences around the world. But it is also a personal story of a genius's mind with its oddity, curiosity and emotional depth.
