The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach, a musical and 1968 art house film, imagines the life of real-life musical duo Johann and Anna Bach. The narrative follows the hip and happening music scene of 18th Century Leipzig, Germany establishing itself in the Bach home, the couple’s dynamics and the career of Johann Bach. Shot in black and white by French directors Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, the film is filled with unwavering, long takes accompanied by an all-classical score.
