Film on Zubin Mehta at the AJFF
“Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds: The Conductor Zubin Mehta”
film at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF)
The dazzling international career of a musical maestro is celebrated in this tribute to an artistic virtuoso and true believer in the international language of music.
Running Time 89 minutes
The term “citizen of the world” has never seemed more apt than in describing Zubin Mehta. Born and raised in Mumbai, Mehta had his musical education in Vienna and keeps homes in Los Angeles and Florence, Italy, while serving as a globe-trotting conductor with lifelong roles at the Israel Philharmonic and other groups. Mehta eloquently describes his sense of moral responsibility to, for instance, conduct the Israeli Philharmonic’s first performance in Berlin. The ungainly titled documentary offers a graceful depiction of Mehta’s approach to leading musicians, and you don’t have to be a classical music expert to enjoy the concert clips.
