An enigmatic musical poet, world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould continues to captivate twenty-seven years after his untimely death. Intimately revealing the man behind the myth, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould casts a fresh light on the mysterious pianist whose ideas were as controversial, and his private life as passionate, as his music. The film features never-before seen footage of Gould, photographs and excerpts from his private home recordings and diaries, plus personal memories from Gould’s most intimate friends and lovers, some who have never spoken about him publicly before.
