    • Synopsis
    • TRIP TO ASIA tells the story of the struggle between individual and community, the timeless search for harmony within oneself and with one‘s neighbours: A unique musical excursion into the overlapping spheres of melancholy, enthusiasm, loneliness and yearning, an adventure told through fascinating cinematic imagery brought together with a dynamic sound and musical experience that creates this universal story of humankind and society into a breathtaking motion picture experience. Director Thomas Grube (RHYTHM IS IT!) and his accomplished film crew accompany the Berlin Philharmonic on a concert tour into six pulsating, dynamic Asian metropolises, juxtaposing centuries-old traditions against the breathtaking speed of Asian modernization. An inspired examination of the cultural clash between western traditions and far-eastern philosophy, between the modernity of Europe and Asia, this compelling new film takes audiences on a journey into the confidential and private inner life of one of the world‘s leading orchestras: a backstage pass into the complicated lives of the artists and diverse musical personalities within this distinguished community.
