#88: Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould (1993)

August 10, 2022

We open on a snowy plain, a tiny figure approaching from the horizon. What follows is a 32 part quasi-biography of the eccentric 20th century pianist told in the style of a multi-part TikTok video. Made in the early 90’s, THIRTY TWO SHORT FILMS ABOUT GLENN GOULD is clearly ahead of its time with its fractal storytelling. We get bits of music, interviews, sketches, animations and audioscapes that each give us a glimpse into the man and the artist that was Glenn Gould. Don’t be intimidated by the large number of films. There is a little something for everyone, and if you hate one, you can just scroll up (or wait–they are short).
