Directed by Romanian-born Radu Mihăileanu, it won Most Popular International Film at the 2005 Vancouver International Film Festival and eight other international awards.

Invitation to Composers is supported by the European Cultural Fund and has enriched Europe's cultural heritage with 40 valuable works inspired by music, literature, visual arts, history and nature. It is building bridges between great traditions of music of the past and contemporary thought, without the use of electronics and non-musical experiments. The three explore together the roots of inspiration and the journey to the final product and its execution. The performers (during workshops) and the audience (during open workshops and concerts) have the privilege of better understanding the message through a direct dialogue with the composer.

Power of love

by Ionela Flood

Norway is engulfed by tears
A game of power?
extreme freedom takes it away
losing love, compassion
losing self control
making Death so clear
for the mourning mothers
for the grieving orphans

Horror crime and terror
challenging the world
scars of hidden hatred
pushing love to hell
tears of heaven given
a tsunami of despair

Stop the power game
stop the me and you
start a bigger together
to save the world
from more pain

Learn to love more, my sisters
learn to breath air not fear
then give it to the world
as an act of passion

Brothers and quiet soldiers
give your guns full hearts
and load them permanently
with the grace of love.
