Piano to Zanskar
Piano to Zanskar is an award-winning documentary film which tells the story of Desmond O'Keeffe, a retired piano tuner from Camden Town, London, who, upon turning 65, decides to undertake the most difficult and perilous piano delivery of his career: transporting a 100-year old upright piano to a tiny village high up in the Indian Himalayas. If successful, the expedition will be the highest piano delivery in the world. More importantly, it will be the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: to inspire strength and bring joy. Featuring an original music score by Werner Herzog collaborator, Ernst Reijseger (Cave of Forgotten Dreams), the film had its official premiere at the 72nd Edinburgh International Film Festival, where it was nominated to the Audience Award, and where it had won the Works in Progress competition the previous year.
