This documentary tracks the pianist-conductor Daniel Barenboim through Berlin, Chicago and Weimar up to his stage anniversary in Buenos Aires and ends up with his controversial performance of Wagner's 'Tristan and Isolde' in Jerusalem. Barenboim's insistence that it is possible to be Jewish and to enjoy the music of an alleged anti-Semite was not a view shared by everyone in a land where feelings run high. "Multiple Identities - Encounters with Daniel Barenboim" shows the multi talented nature of the musician Barenboim. The film shows Barenboim teaching young musicians and founding the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra consisting of Arab, Palestinian and Israeli-Jewish musicians. "Multiple Identities" is a film about music, about music making and a celebration of a remarkable personality.
