To create this portrait of the brilliant composer Philip Glass, director Scott Hicks followed him across three continents for 18 months - from his annual ride on the Coney Island ‘Cyclone’ roller coaster, to the world premiere of his new opera in Germany and in performance with a didgeridoo virtuoso in Australia. Allowed unprecedented access to Glass’ working process and collaborators (including Martin Scorcese and Errol Morris), Hicks presents a unique glimpse into the life of one of our greatest artists.

“Fascinating…as haunting as one of Glass’ own works” – Critics Pick, New York Magazine

“Here’s a beautiful look into the life and creative processes of one of the world’s foremost composers. … It’s appropriate – hell, it’s necessary – that a documentary about Glass provide sound as crisp and clear as the sharpest images onscreen, and this one does, with aural textures you can almost feel against your skin.” – The Austin Chronicle

“This two hour documentary by Scott Hicks does a great job of capturing the remarkably diverse work that Glass is creating, from solo concerts to operas to film scores to symphonies.” &n
