DVDcover300For thirteen months a documentary film crew based in Berlin filmed VIVICA in various concert and private venues around the world. The “icing on the cake” was her January 1, 2004 recital in Fairbanks, Alaska marking a return to the city of her birth.

Entitled “A Voice Out Of The Cold,” the documentary opens with Vivica bundled up in winter clothing standing in the snow and waving a white cloth as she hails a passenger train that will take her home to Fairbanks. In the film, Vivica shares her memories of her growing up years in Fairbanks where she first showcased her vocal talent as Eliza Doolittle in her high school’s production of My Fair Lady.

And she shares the music she has become famous for as well. The film shows footage with René Jacobs and the Akademie für alte Musik Berlin in rehearsal for a concert in Berlin in February 2003. She is also heard both in rehearsal and in a January 2004 recital with pianist Craig Rutenberg at the Charles W. Davis Concert Hall in Fairbanks. There is also film footage of a session in Venice with her coach Attilio Cremonesi.
