Scope and content

Series consists of scripts, interview transcripts, research material and correspondence, as well as original film elements of the 2005 documentary “Beethoven’s Hair”. Directed by Larry Weinstein, the 84 minute film traces the journey of a lock of hair cut from Beethoven’s corpse and efforts of two enthusiasts Ira Brilliant and Che Guevara to reveal medical evidence to explain the composer’s tortured life and death. Set to score of some of Beethoven’s best compositions, the film explores forensic testing, 19th Century Vienna and 20th century Nazi Germany. Based on Russel Martin’s best selling book, “Beethoven’s Hair” was co-produced by Rhombus and Dor Films and includes archival footage of Nazi-era Germany and Denmark.
