Araluen Art House Cinema: Highly Strung

(AUS) – Rated M – Some Subtitles

Join Director Scott Hicks (Shine) on a journey delving into the rarefied worlds of fine instruments and the musicians, deals, museums and philanthropists who seek them out. ‘Highly Strung’ explores the complex, stirring connections between elusive tones evoked by horsehair on strings, high-rolling investors tempted to spend millions on unique instruments, and a quartet of virtuosi caught up in a duel of tension and harmony. Focussing on members of the Australian String Quartet and the unique world of rare Guadagnini instruments, ‘Highly Strung’ takes us from Adelaide to London, Paris, Venice and New York to meet the fascinating characters that bring these instruments to life…….and then there is the music!
