TORONTO - After a successful launch at TIFF 2009, Union Pictures and White Pine Pictures are pleased to bring Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould to audiences across Canada with a series of Special Screenings in select venues beginning with The Royal in Toronto and the Cinéma du Parc in Montréal. Confirmed dates in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Waterloo, and Ottawa will be announced in the coming weeks.

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.

Although undoubtedly one of the most famous artists of his time - what do any of us really know about the man Glenn Gould, who would turn his back on celebrity for the sake of his art and whose devotion to his craft cost him the relationships most dear to him? A collaboration between award-winning documentary director
Peter Raymont and award-winning editor Michèle Hozer in her directorial debut, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould explores these questions and humanizes the icon.

Featuring 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, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould takes a fresh look at the artist who continues to captivate twenty-seven years after his untimely death.
