THE REMARKABLE STORY OF A MAN, A MOUNTAIN, AND A PIANO
WINNER OF THE 2019 GRAND PRIZE AT BANFF! Michael Sulima’s multi award-winning documentary film, Piano to Zanskar, takes us on a riveting, life-affirming journey with Desmond O’Keeffe, aka Mr Gentle, a 65-year old piano tuner who embarks on the impossible mission of transporting a 100 year-old Broadwood and Sons upright piano from bustling London to the remote heart of the Indian Himalayas.
Desmond’s ambitious destination is a primary school in Lingshed, Zanskar. At 14,000 feet above sea level, it is one of the most isolated settlements in the world. Aided by a team of local Sherpas, as well as a motley crew of yaks and ponies, Desmond and his trusty assistants are tested to the limit, physically and psychologically, as they cross sheer mountain passes of breath-taking beauty. If successful, the expedition will be the highest piano delivery in the world! But more importantly, it will be the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: to inspire strength and bring joy.
Piano to Zanskar features an original musical score by Werner Herzog collaborator, Ernst Reijseger (Cave of Forgotten Dreams)
