Director: Michèle Hozer, Peter Raymont
A fascinating look at a legend in the classical music scene, which delves into the man behind the carefully cultivated public persona.
Renowned for his interpretations of Bach, pianist Glenn Gould burst onto the performance scene to great fanfare before shunning public performance for the rest of his career.
Three decades after his death this production goes behind the cultivated mask of Gould's public persona to reveal a complex, idiosyncratic and eccentric personality. With a wealth of footage, much of it previously unseen, filmmakers Peter Raymont and Michèle Hozer explore Gould's life, including his career as a television producer and film director.
“I'm very much the antihero in real life, you see, but I compensate madly in my dreams.” - Glenn Gould
