The film contains rare historical footage, most of which has never been seen before, as well as recent material showing Vangelis improvising new music. In a career spanning over 50 years, with as many albums to his name, Vangelis is regarded as one of the greatest composers of electronic music of all time.
He is best known for his Academy Award winning score for the film ‘Chariots of Fire’, and composing scores for the films ‘Antarctica’, ‘Blade Runner’, ‘1492: Conquest of Paradise’ and ‘Alexander’. In addition, his music was used in the PBS documentary ‘Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan’. Tony Palmer’s film celebrates the music legend’s illustrious and fascinating career.
