LECT presents MOVIE NIGHT SHOWCASE - Crossing Rachmaninoff

Courtesy of Rebecca Tansley and Rialto Distribution

This documentary follows Auckland-based, Italian-born pianist Flavio Villani as he prepares to play Sergei Rachmaninoff’s demanding Piano Concerto No. 2 in Italy — his debut performance as a soloist with an orchestra. Director Rebecca Tansley, who funded much of the documentary herself, tails Villani from four months before the recital that will challenge the prodigal son to affirm his career choice and sexuality, in front of his Italian ex-military father. When it debuted at the 2015 Auckland Film Festival, Crossing Rachmaninoff won a standing ovation. 

Crossing Rachmaninoff is as much a delight for the senses as it is emotionally compelling… a feast of music, of images, and of humanity. - Anthony Robins, The Standard
