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.

    LONG SYNOPSIS
    An enigmatic musical poet, world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould continues to captivate
    international audiences twenty-six years after his untimely death.
    His inimitable music and writing reveal an insightful worldview that we are still unraveling – his
    use of complex recording technologies, including editing and manipulating recordings and overdubbing,
    was unprecedented. Though there have been many documentaries about Gould, most
    are distracted by his eccentricities, focusing on the pills, gloves, and scarves while missing the
    man and message behind the music. Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould pierces
    through the myths, revealing the man beneath the icon
    Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould humanizes a legend and provides a new
    context, for his legion of fans as well as those encountering Gould for the first time, to
    understand the passion and inspiration that gave rise to such a genius and his incomparable
    power of expression.
    Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould weaves together an unprecedented array of
    never-before seen footage of Gould, photographs and excerpts from his private home
    recordings and diaries, plus personal interviews with Gould’s most intimate friends and lovers,
    some who have never spoken about him publicly before. The film reconstructs his thoughts on
    music, art, society, love, and life. Interviews include Cornelia Foss, Roxolana Roslak, Ray
    Roberts, Petula Clark, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Lorne Tulk, John Roberts, Mark Kingwell and many
    others.
    In our current media saturated world, where information trumps knowledge, there’s a profound
    need for someone who cuts through the static, and speaks to us with a clear, candid, and
    timeless tone. That is one of Glenn Gould’s most profound gifts.
    After 8 years of creating award-winning documentaries together, Genius Within: The Inner
    Life of Glenn Gould, sees Gemini award-winning editor Michèle Hozer step out of the cutting
    room for the first time to co-direct with Emmy award-winning filmmaker/producer Peter Raymont
    of White Pine Pictures
