Boxer by Day, Tenor by Night

a documentary in English

Amsterdam-based artist and director Ruben Van Leer’s latest film, You Don’t Know Opera, is a high-energy portrait of professional tenor and amateur boxer Frank Engel, made in collaboration with the Dutch National Opera with the aim of attracting a different audience into its drama-filled world. Here, Van Leer talks about the story behind the film:

The wine she produces at Silver Heights vineyard in the country’s Ningxia region is winning over critics and wine drinkers at home and abroad. With ambitions to make Ningxia China’s Napa Valley—the renowned Californian winemaking region that sparked scandal at the 1976 Judgment of Paris blind tasting by stealing first place from a French wine—Gao is championing the region as “a new world in the new world.” Read more on NOWNESS - http://bit.ly/2e3P9Th
