Event description

Description

DOORS & BAR 7PM / EVENT 7.30PM

Free popcorn provided.

Subtitled screening.

At age 8, Scottish percussionist Evelyn Glennie realized she was going deaf. A high school teacher advised her to practice without a hearing aid, responding to the music with her other senses.

Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer, this documentary follows her travels as she demonstrates her ability to play music using vibrations and other tactile sensations.

Riedelsheimer is also known for his direction of documentaries Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time and Breathing Earth about sculptor Susumu Shingu.

Evelyn Glennie and Andy Goldsworthy have in common a profound sensitivity to their environments. They look around wherever they find themselves and begin to discover ways to create the order of art out of the chaos of existence. Their art is intended to be evanescent. It can be recorded on CDs or film, but it exists most fully during its own creation. Both artists seem to live more fully because so completely in the moment. There is a kind of bliss about them’. - Robert Ebert

(2005, 99mins, Rated U)
