William Christie – A Talent For Giving
© Les Films Jack Fébus
Born and raised in the USA, William Christie has become one of the greatest ambassadors of French music around the world. A true icon, for the past four decades, the founder of Les Arts Florissants – which is recognized as one of the best baroque ensembles of our time – has tirelessly devoted himself to transmitting his knowledge to up-and-coming young musical talents. This film reveals his surprising life story and uses the creation of a show with young singers and musicians from around the word to try to get to the root of Christie’s unquenchable desire to transmit a cultural heritage, memory and sensitivity.
