Beethoven is the epitome of German musical culture. But what lies behind the name “Ludwig van”, which has long since become an international brand? The film “Beethoven Reloaded” takes a fresh look at the eminent composer from a decidedly contemporary perspective vis-à-vis the backdrop of his biography and work. It seeks to answer the question of why this artist has advanced to become a global icon and what relevance and expressiveness his work still has today. Director Andy Sommer and his team have traveled to Tokyo, Cape Town, Vienna, Bonn, Teplice, Lisbon and many other locations to capture the echo of Beethoven's universal and musical-humanist message all over the world. Using modern cinematic techniques, the essential biographical facts form the leitmotif of a multi-faceted image of Beethoven in the here and now.

In the early 1960s, the who-is-who of the avant-garde met in her attic apartment in Cologne's Lintgasse, among them John Cage, Hans G Helms, Nam June Paik, to only name a few. Today, at the age of 84, retirement is far from her mind. As long as her strength allows, she works in her studio near Cologne, the scene of the first feature-length documentary film about Mary Bauermeister and her extraordinary biography.
