Description & Features+

From director François Girard ("The Red Violin"), "Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould" is the award-winning 1993 film about the piano prodigy Glenn Gould played by Colm Feore ("The Borgias," "24," "Thor"). The music consists almost entirely of piano recordings by Gould and includes pieces famously linked with him, such as Bach's "The Goldberg Variations," and the "Well-Tempered Clavier." The film is not a single narrative, but rather a series of thirty-two short films that include documentaries (five interviews with people who knew him) and recreations of scenes from Gould's life. Segments range in length from six minutes to less than one minute. The form was inspired by "The Goldberg Variations," which was Gould's first acclaimed recording. According to Girard: "As Gould was such a complex character, the biggest problem was to find a way to look at his work and deal with his visions. The film is built of fragments, each one trying to capture an aspect of Gould. There is no way of putting Gould in one box. The film gives the viewer 32 impressions of him. I didn't want to reduce him to one dimension." "Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould" won four Genie Awards and Best Canadian Feature Film at the Toronto International Film Festival.
