Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould

.

Glenn Gould: The Inner Life pierces through the myths, revealing the man beneath the icon and reconstructing his thoughts on music, art, society, love and life. It weaves together an unprecedented array of very rare archival footage with interviews of Gould’s closest friends, some of whom have never spoken about him before, plus never-before-heard home recordings and excerpts from his private diaries. Though many have delved into the eccentricities of Gould’s life, they have been distracted by the pills, gloves, and scarves. This documentary does not miss the man or the message behind the music.

Language(s): English
