Vincerò! Ron Howard's documentary about Pavarotti at the 25th Athens International Film festival

"Pavarotti", Ron Howard's documentary about the "king of the high C's" is part of the ICONS section and will be introduced by tenor Marios Frangoulis.

The idea of celebrity isn’t something new but the last 60 years it has evolved and during this social media era it has taken some twisted turns .The most important is that of demolishing, the crushing reformism which attacks all sense (and sensibility) of what is important. Thankfully, Ron Howard stayed away from all that.

Focusing on one of the most important tenors in music history and the greatest star of classical music, it would be ungrateful to gossip about the choices of a charismatic artist who offered more than he ever got. With an abundance of charisma, humanity and faith in life, the documentary about Luciano Pavarotti is a touching tribute to the man and an affirmation to Art as life's pinnacle.

Featuring moments from the life and career of the exuberant tenor supported by impressive archival footage and a plethora of “co-stars” from Princess Diana to Bono, to Spike Lee and naturally to Plácido Domingo and José Carreras, Academy Award winner Ron Howard delivers a highly satisfying sketch overflowing with passion in the same way that the preeminent star of the contemporary opera scene performed each note.
