An announcement from Phil Raschke.
A 300 year old Bussotti violin is on auction in Montreal. The violin is considered by experts as the most perfect acoustical instrument ever made. It is desired by rich and poor alike. But why is the color red? This mystery and others were foretold in a 1681 reading of Tarot Cards and only understood by a few.
Since its creation over 300 years ago, this violin was prized by owners in Italy, Poland, England, China and Canada where you will be provided a front row seat at the auction as the intense bidding wars begin.
This Academy Award winning thriller is beautifully photographed, majestically acted by an amazing international cast and accompanied by a song track that will leave you in awe! A marvelous film not to be missed.
