Film, and then some

Shut Up and Play the Piano

Saturday 4th May, 2019

The Mockingbird | 16:30 - 18:00

Welcome to the world of Chilly Gonzales.

From Canada to Berlin to Paris, this career-spanning documentary follows the Grammy-winning, genre-juggling provocateur through his playful tale of outrageous underground punk rap, mesmeric piano in the greatest philharmonic halls and collaborations with the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Daft Punk and Drake.

Blurring fact with fiction and bursting with swagger and attitude, Philippe Jedicke’s film is just as over-the-top and eccentric as the self-proclaimed musical genius himself.

A brilliantly preposterous ride.
