Ecce Homo: A Portrait Of Célestin Deliège is a deep, strong and raw portrait of one of the greatest musical thinkers in Europe, who passed away in 2010. Célestin Deliège was the last representative (with Pierre Boulez) of post-War modernism. Prestigious musicologist (passing his encyclopedic knowledge through violent polemic), teacher at the Conservatory of Liege, Brussels and La Sorbonne, he impressed many students -- students who have since become important composers today, not the least Hugues Dufourt, a founder of spectral music. This film is made from ten interviews with Deliège, either introspective face-to-face meetings, or with artists such as Pascal Decroupet, François Nicolas, Fred Lerdahl, Hugues Dufourt, Antoine Bonnet and Ensemble Ictus. Ecco Homo shows a man in his illness, certainly, but who fights until his last breath, looking for a lost transcendence, a re-enchantment, calling for Artaud's madness. Rooted in the supreme art of music, this film addresses both the pain of departure and the beauty of existence. 90 minutes. In French with English subtitles. Double-sided DVD in both NTSC & PAL formats, region free.
