Premiere of the film "The Maestro: In Search of the Last Music" by Alexandre Valenti.

For more than 30 years, one man has single-handedly taken on a unique challenge: tracking down, archiving and performing all the pieces of music written and composed in the camps of the Second World War.

The gripping quest has been turned into a film about history, like a journey through time to overcome oblivion, to preserve the memory of these women and men, of all nationalities and all confessions, who turned music into an act of resistance.
