Biopic on Andrea Bocelli makes debut in Flagstaff cinema series on Valentine’s Day

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Flagstaff Valentine’s Day premiere of “The Music of Silence” — starring Toby Sebastian and Antonio Banderas — on Wednesday, Feb. 14 as part of the festival’s monthly Flagstaff Cinema Series. There will be one screening of the film at 7:00 p.m. at Harkins Flagstaff 16 Theatres.

Flagstaff audiences get to see the film the same week it opens in New York and Los Angeles.
From the Academy Award-nominated director of “Il Postino” and “The Merchant of Venice” — Michael Radford — comes this mesmerizing and beautiful biopic of Andrea Bocelli, a blind boy, who against all odds becomes one of the most world renowned opera singers. To date, he has sold over 80 million records worldwide.

Everyone knows his voice, his international songs, however much less is known of the private life of Andrea Bocelli. He was born with the gift of voice and without one of sight. Driven by great ambition, his life will be challenging until he manages to achieve his first great success on stage with “Miserere”.

“The Music of Silence” is based on Andrea Bocelli‘s 1999 memoir and features unreleased songs he composed as a young man.
It follows Bocelli’s ascent to stardom, beginning with a loving family that encouraged his musical gifts and his journey dealing with blindness at a young age.
