Storyline

Having achieved worldwide recognition with a Golden Globe award for her work with Hans Zimmer on the soundtrack for 'Gladiator', Lisa Gerrard's life and work has influenced and touched many people. From her beginnings with the 1980's group Dead Can Dance, through to her success as a Hollywood film composer and a solo artist, Lisa Gerrard's powerful vocal and musical style has captivated fans and film goers alike for the past twenty years. From her childhood amongst the multi-cultural sounds of 1960's Melbourne, her musical influences range from her Celtic ancestry, native Australia, her years living and working in Europe through to the middle east. Treating her voice truly as an instrument, used alongside orchestration, playing the yang chin and cymbalon, she is able to create musical emotions, which are timeless and cross ethnic and spiritual divides.

Visually stunning! Music Amazing!
26 May 2007 | by d-nowackiSee all my reviews

This film much like this comment is for fans of Lisa Gerrard. This DVD is a career spanning retrospective on the woman and her awe-inspiring voice. It touches on current events such as media and their role in the world, war, and of course music. Lisa talks about her life very candidly. From Dead Can Dance, her work in films, the death of her brother, when she was young, etc... As well, there are around a dozen or so interviews with other people who have had the privilege to work with her throughout her career. While it does seem to be a little long winded at times, all the info included is relevant and does have significant meaning in the big picture. Visually, everything is high class. Images seem to leap off the screen. From the main menu, opening credits, even the production company logo is eye candy. The director of this documentary is most definitely a fan of Lisa and has done everything in his power to represent her sound with visual. Job well done. Bonus features include the director talking about the film,photo gallery,a beautiful discography with pictures and track listings, as well as a new music video from Silver Tree. I highly recommend this film for fans of Lisa and her introspective music. Also recommended: Dead Can Dance: Toward the Within DVD performance.
