There is no other place in the world like Italy: the sun and the sea salt, the scent of the citrus & coffee, a seductive gaze, an incomparable song rising from the heart. Anca Monica Pandelea’s film documents Kaufmann’s special affinity with the Italian language, the Italian way of life and culture – and also, of course, the music.
Jonas presents his personal tribute to a culture where the influence and beauty of Opera goes beyond the walls of the theatre. Puccini and Verdi are not the central figures of the concert however, but the hits from tenors like Enrico Caruso & Lucia Dalla. The concert was recorded in Teatro Carignano in Turin, the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionalle della RAI accompanies the star under the baton of Jochen Rieder. Kaufmann sings popular songs like “Torna a Surriento”, “Cor’ngrato”, “ Mattinata”, “Parla pie piano”, “Caruso” & “Il canto”.
Available from June 2017 on 2K DCP, Pannonia Entertainment distributes this thrilling concert documentary to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Poland, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and the Balkan Countries (Bosnia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo)

Revolution – New Art for a New World is a bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde.
Drawing on the collections of major Russian institutions, contributions from contemporary artists, curators, and performers and personal testimony from the descendants of those involved, the film brings the artists of the Russian Avant-Garde to life. It tells the stories of artists like Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich and others – pioneers who flourished in response to the Utopian challenge of building a New Art for a New World, only to be broken by implacable authority after 15 short years. Stalin’s rise to power marked the close of this momentous period. Yet the Russian Avant-Garde continues to exert a lasting influence over art movements up to the present day.
Filmed entirely on location in Moscow, St. Petersburg and London, with access to The State Tretyakov Gallery, The State Russian Museum, The State Hermitage Museum and in co-operation with The Royal Academy of Arts, London, the film features paintings previously banned and unseen for decades, and masterpieces which rarely leave Russia.
