Film Celebrates Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony

Experience the joyful message of hope of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in Kerry Candaele’s film, ‘Following the Ninth.’ The Ninth provided unity and courage to participants in Tiananmen Square in Beijing and the fall of the Berlin Wall; it also gave strength to Chilean women resisting Pinochet’s dictatorship and to Japanese citizens in the aftermath of the Tsunami of 2011. ‘Following the Ninth’ will be shown, free of charge, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14, in the Oldcastle Theater, 331 Main Street, Bennington. This event is sponsored by the Greater Bennington Peace and Justice Center; donations to support their work will be gratefully accepted. To ensure seating, it is recommended that viewers arrive one half hour before the showing. For information about the mission of Greater Bennington Peace and Justice Center, visit
