In 2005, award-winning director Scott Hicks began shooting a documentary about the legendary composer Philip Glass. Over the next 18 months, Scott followed Philip across three continents, from his annual ride on the Coney Island "Cyclone" roller coaster to the world premier of his new opera in Germany. Allowed unprecedented access to Glass's working process, family and long time collaborators (including Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese and Errol Morris), Hicks provides a unique glimpse behind the curtain into the life of a surprising and complex man, creating a remarkable portrait of one of the greatest artists of all time.
