White Pine Pictures is proud to announce its new feature documentary Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould will have its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 13, 2009.
Although undoubtedly one of the most famous musical stars of his time - what do any of us really know about the man Glenn Gould, who would turn his back on celebrity for the sake of his art and whose devotion to his craft cost him the relationships most dear to him.
A collaboration between award-winning documentary director Peter Raymont and award-winning editor Michèle Hozer, who steps out of the cutting room to make her directorial debut, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould explores these questions and humanizes the icon.
An enigmatic musical poet, world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould continues to captivate twenty-seven years after his untimely death.
Intimately revealing the man behind the myth, this filmcasts a fresh light on the mysterious pianist whose ideas were as controversial, and his private life as passionate, as his music.
Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould features never-before seen footage of Gould, photographs and excerpts from his private home recordings and diaries, plus personal memories from Gould's most intimate friends and lovers, some who have never spoken about him publicly before.
