Summary
"Marking the centenary of Kathleen Ferrier's birth, Diane Perelsztejn's specially-extended feature-length film traces the remarkable life - and tragically brief career - of one of the greatest singers of all time. Drawing on recently-discovered material, and supported by a companion CD featuring unreleased live recordings from New York, the film is both a stirring portrait of an extraordinary woman and a tribute to a glorious voice that enthralled the world"--Container
