Simon is a young orphan being raised by his uncle Tom. As his grandfather lay dying, Simon discovers how racist and backwards his uncle is. Simon's grandfather hated Simon's father and claims that he intentionally killed Simon's mother in a car crash. Simon's family narrative is cleverly knit into a news story presented to Simon by his high school French teacher as a translation exercise. The article is read by the teacher about an attempted bombing of an aircraft by a man who put explosives in his pregnant wife's luggage. Simon gets the idea to translate the story and write it from the perspective of the child in the woman's womb. The teacher encourages Simon to develop his story, present it to the class and to the world via the Internet as if he really was that child. The narrative of the car crash and the attempted bombing of the plane become intertwined as a way for the characters to deal with their past experiences. Simon's story takes a twist that involves everyone in his life

Inspired by Bach. falling down stairs ; Sarabande ( visu )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 95 libraries worldwide
Falling down stairs: Cellist Yo-Yo Ma embarks on an intense year-long collaboration with choreographer Mark Morris, which culminates in a performance, conceived especially for film, of J.S. Bach's 3rd suite for unaccompanied cello as interpreted by Yo-Yo Ma and the 14-member Mark Morris Dance Group. The film follows Mark and Yo-Yo from city to city, documenting their collaborations with intimacy, humour and candor. We see the first meeting of Mark and Yo-Yo as they set down the rules of this most unusual creative experiment; we see Mark struggling to overcome a creative block as he builds new choreography; we see his dancers run through sections of the suite while Yo-Yo accompanies them on cello; we see Mark conduct Yo-Yo while the latter makes a recording of the suite for compact disc; and finally, we witness the pay-off as Yo-Yo and the dancers perform the suite exclusively for and with the camera--Adapted from the Mark Morris Dance Group web site
