Lorber Films is proud to announce the U.S. theatrical premiere of GENIUS WITHIN: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould, directed by distinguished filmmakers Michèle Hozer and Peter Raymont (Shake Hands with the Devil), the definitive documentary about one of the greatest and most enigmatic musicians of the twentieth century.

An eccentric and idiosyncratic musical poet, world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould continues to captivate twenty-eight years after his untimely death.  Gould’s inimitable music and writing reveal an insightful world-view that we are still unraveling, including his complex and unprecedented recording technologies. Overflowing with his original music and never before seen footage, plus exclusive interviews with friends and lovers given for the first time on film, GENIUS WITHIN: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould pierces through the myths revealing the man beneath the icon in this definitive must-see documentary.
