Thirty Two Short Films on Glenn Gould

Glenn Gould (1932-1982) was a Canadian who became one of the world's most renowned classical pianists.  From ten years of age, he was giving piano recitals throughout the United States and Canada. Then, at age thirty-two, Gould gave his last public concert, preferring to live a reclusive life and make studio recordings instead -- considered the some of the best ever classical recordings
Director Francois Girard, decides to reflect Gould's life through a series of 32 short vignettes, modelled on the 32 sections of Gould’s most famous recording, Bach’s Goldberg Variations
The episodes vary from dramatizations of incidents from Glenn Gould's life to ideas inspired by his music and reflections of friends who knew him - all to a soundtrack of his recordings.
