Our next showing:
Seymour: An Introduction (2014) Directed by Ethan Hawke
A documentary featuring Seymour Bernstein who started playing the piano as a little boy, and by the time he turned 15 was teaching it to others.
He enjoyed a long and illustrious career as a performer before he gave it up to devote himself to helping young pianists develop their own gifts.
While Ethan Hawke’s gentle, meditative study is a warm and lucid portrait of Bernstein and his exceptional life and work, it’s also a love letter to the study of music itself, and a film about the patience, concentration, and devotion that are fundamental to the practice of art. Seymour: An Introduction allows us to spend time with a generous human being who has found balance and harmony through his love of music.
“The movie’s real subject is the difficulty -- and the critical importance -- of bringing into harmony one’s personal and artistic lives, of being not only a good artist but a joyful one.”
“It’s quiet, considered and spellbinding, with a great deal of beautiful music - some of it performed exquisitely by Bernstein himself.”
