A scrupulous, candid and eye-opening account. A tour de force of archival research and dogged interviewing, the portrait it presents is remarkably complete.

TRAILER

 

Genius within:
the inner life of
glenn gould

A film by Peter Raymont and Michèle Hozer

2010 • 90 min

Most profiles of the brilliant pianist focus on his eccentricities: the pills, the gloves, the scarves. Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould probes beneath the icon’s many myths through Gould’s music, diaries, letters and interviews with his closest friends and lovers – some of whom have never spoken publicly about him before. The film reveals a tortured, yet often humorous man, with an insightful world view. Glenn Gould’s profound ability to speak to his audience in a clear, candid and timeless tone, cuts through the static of our over-mediated, information-overloaded world.

Telefilm Canada and the Rogers Group of Funds through the Theatrical Documentary Program present, Genius Within: The Inner Life Of Glenn Gould.
