Directed by Terrence Malick
Wordless Music Orchestra

Presented in association with Wordless Music

 
 

More than 100 musicians and singers from the Wordless Music Orchestra perform live accompaniment to a special screening of Terrence Malick’s (Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line) 2011 masterpiece The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain. Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes and hailed by Roger Ebert as one of the 10 greatest films of all time, Malick’s dazzling formal achievement takes a tender portrait of a 1950s Texas family as the seed for a sweeping inquiry into cosmological existence. Music by Mahler, Berlioz, Brahms, Górecki, Mozart, and Couperin courses throughout this gorgeously shot hymn to the sacred within the secular, where time eternal merges with fallible human love.

 

Conducted by Ryan McAdams
Robert Fleitz, piano
Jennifer Zetlan, soprano

Produced by BAM and Wordless Music

“With disarming sincerity and daunting formal sophistication The Tree of Life ponders some of the hardest and most persistent questions, the kind that leave adults speechless when children ask them.”
— The New York Times
“...delivers truths that don’t go down easy. No one with a genuine interest in the potential of film would think of missing it.”
