Event Details

Nominated for the Audience Award at the 2018 Edinburgh International Film Festival, Piano to Zanskar (Michal Sulima, 2018) is a perfect choice for the Docs@TheByre: Celebrating the Cinematic Documentary film series. With breathtaking cinematography and engaging characters, it is a true pleasure to watch. Director Michal Sulima and Producer Jarek Kotomski will be present for a Q&A.

Retired piano tuner Desmond Gentle embarks on a quest to bring an upright piano to a primary school in the isolated village of Lingshed, located in the Himalayas, 14,000 feet above sea level. If successful, it will be the highest piano delivery in history. Join Desmond and his companions, plus some yaks and ponies, on this delightful, beautiful and, occasionally, harrowing journey.

The event is free but ticketed.
