Berlin Film Society Special Screening – Shut Up and Play the Piano

September 7 @ 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM

The Berlin Film Society and Berliner Union Film have just announced a special preview screening of the acclaimed Berlinale documentary Shut Up and Play the Piano on September 7th – a unique, revealing and at times surreal portrait about Grammy-winning composer, virtuoso pianist and entertainer, Chilly Gonzales, with director Phillipp Jedicke joining us via Skype after the screening for a Q&A.
The film follows Gonzales from his native Canada to late 90’s underground Berlin, and via Paris to the world’s great philharmonic halls. It dives deep into the dichotomy of Gonzales’ stage persona, where self-doubt and megalomania are just two sides of the same coin. The playfulness of Gonzales’ character is mirrored in the look of the film. Using Gonzales’ extensive video archive in a rather unorthodox manner, Shut Up And Play The Piano explores his persona by interweaving newly shot interviews and concert scenes with fictional materials of totally different time periods. Reality and fiction blur together as we embark on a trip through Chilly Gonzales’ world.
