Directed by Frank Scheffer, Voyage to Cythera explores Italian composer Luciano Berio's tribute to Gustav Mahler.

'For me, Mahler is a ship plying the ocean, a ship filled with fine things, magnificent people and gifts' said Luciano Berio, describing the central movement of his Sinfonia (1968). In this 1999 documentary he discusses the creative process behind a defining modern masterpiece.
