Pablo Casals: A Cry for Peace
Year:  2001
Running Time:  85 minutes
Country:  USA
Genre:  Documentary
Director:  Robert Snyder

Description:
  Academy Award winner Robert Snyder's Pablo Casals: A Cry for Peace is a film about one of the greatest musicians of all time who devoted most of his illustrious career to the cause of world peace. During the Spanish Civil war, when he was already considered the greatest living cellist, Casals, outraged by the horror and stupidity of war, went into self-imposed exile vowing never to play again in public in the countries that recognized the then dictator of Spain, Francisco Franco. This, of course, meant most countries in the world and a potentially great sacrifice to his career. Eventually, he emerged from his self-imposed exile, realizing that with his presence on the world stage, he could, in fact strengthen his "cry" against the injustices of war. He thus embarked on a world "peace crusade," using his cello, and conductor's baton as his only weapon. This is the story, told exclusively in his own words, of Casals' rise from poverty to fame and wealth and of his resolve to devote his name and world-stature to the cause of world peace.

This film is preceeded on Monday, March 25 by the short film, "Sweet."
