111 cyclists reach famed opera house Teatro Colón to welcome Mauricio Kagel (1931-2008), one of the great composers of the 20th Century, who was born in Argentina, but left the country and settled in Germany in 1957. However, his adventurous music remained an inspiration to a number of forward-thinking Argentinean musicians, and in 2006 he returned to Buenos Aires for a Kagel festival, where he was to direct a major concert by the Buenos Aires Philharmonic, but also worked with a group of young and eager musicians advocated to his repertoire, the Ensamble Süden. Filmmaker Gaston Solnicki was on hand to capture Kagel's visit on film, and the documentary süden chronicles the composer's efforts in working directly with the musicians as well as reflecting the situation of modern music in Argentina as such. The film surprises for its capacity to captivate even those who are not interested in contemporary music.
