Film Fest Gent - Pavarotti

After documenting The Beatles and rapper Jay-Z, Ron Howard moves genres and focuses on Luciano Pavarotti, the Italian tenor whose funeral was broadcast live on CNN. Pavarotti was the most prominent classical voice of the 20thcentury and succeeded in making opera approachable to everyone. Both Pavarotti's successes and failures are revealed in this documentary.

Plus Parcours: the screening on 10 October will have an introduction by Roel Van Bambost. After the screening, you can also get an illy coffee and a pastry in the VIP area upon presentation of your Plus Parcours ticket.
