, directed by distinguished filmmakers Michèle Hozer and Peter Raymont (Shake Hands with the Devil

Overflowing with his original music and never before seen footage, plus exclusive interviews with friends and lovers given for the first time on film, GENIUS WITHIN: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould
pierces through the myths revealing the man beneath the icon in this definitive must-see documentary.
A must see film"John Anderson, Variety
..."a brilliant and highly accurate piece of work..." Penny Johnson, F Minor/The Glenn Gould Foundation
gifts us with an invigorating and brightly unsettling journey into the complex psyche of Glenn Gould. Through the miracle of vintage film we are lured into the dense forest of his imaginationmischievous and divine. Gould exhibits his unparallel skills, shuffles in his everpresent overcoat, and is so alive that we sense his footsteps, and feel his breath as we are assaulted by the duality of his smile."Patti Smith
