About

The Automaton and the Magic Spell introduces us to the world of Maurice Ravel through one of his most lovely works, String Quartet in F Major, performed on screen by the Canadian ensemble Quatuor Arthur Leblanc.

This film presents a series of four dance segments interspersed with documentary vignettes. The choreographies correspond to the four movements comprising the work and re-create key elements of the French composer's life. Drawing on archival documents, the vignettes offer a brief biography of Ravel.
