Exhaling Music | Digging Deeper

Exhaling Music tells of Beppe's intense and life-threatening breach with religion when he was 17.
His childhood religion could never follow him into adulthood. Award-winning documentary featuring composer Flint Juventino Beppe.

Surrounded by secrecy, the Rognan-composer Flint Juventino Beppe, 36, has captured the heart and minds of the international music scene. The self-taught composer is on first name terms with stars such as Sir James Galway and Vladimir Ashkenazy. "I never compose music", Beppe says, "the tones just float around inside my head. When they get too loud, I have to breathe them out." This film is a story about a personal war, and about finally recapturing the love for music and life.

– Being a somewhat withdrawn person, this kind of attention is not daily fare for me. However, I felt very well taken care of by the production company, and it was a strong experience to be part of this adventure. I hope that this story might bring about some entertaining and good moments.
