About the Show

*WINNER: Best Feature Film Documentary - Madrid Film Awards 2024*

"Living Bach" is a 2023 documentary by the veteran German filmmaker Anna Schmidt. The film embarks on a journey through six continents to meet musicians and singers in Japan, Paraguay, the USA, Malaysia, South Africa, Australia, Switzerland, with different cultures, religions, and realities of life - and yet they are all united by one great passion: the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. 

What do people seek and find in his music? What connects them across continents? What fascination lies in the music of the famous German composer, which manages to transcend borders, cultures, religions and centuries? "Living Bach" tracks down these enthusiasts and reveals extraordinary, exciting and life-changing relationships to Bach's incomparable work. We meet people for whom Bach's music brings joy, comfort, hope and understanding. One of these people is the Malaysian Lee Hai Lin, a violinist who has a great passion and dedication to music and community. "Living Bach" explores her journey from Kuala Lumpur to Leipzig, together with her colleagues from around the world, and the documentary also showcases the pioneering work of Bachfest Malaysia in helping to make the music of Bach more accessible to Malaysians.

This screening is supported by klpac and marks the Malaysian premiere of "Living Bach". It will be preceded by a short recital featuring Lin and other musicians from Bachfest Malaysia who will be representing the country at the global Bach festival, Bachfest Leipzig, which will take place in Germany this June.
