They Shot the Piano Player

April 2, 7:10 PM

$8 – $12

A true original, They Shot the Piano Player is an entirely animated film blending fact and fiction. An American journalist (voiced by Jeff Goldblum) wants to get to the bottom of the disappearance of Brazilian jazz bossa nova pianist Francisco Tenório Jr., who’s maintained a cult following after his “disappearance” while on tour in Argentina in 1976. The music is terrific, the animation is innovative, and the story compelling in the “visually exuberant” (Karen Gordon, Original Cin) new movie from Academy Award winner Fernando Trueba (Belle Époque, Chico and Rita) and Javier Mariscal. “This is a film that comes from a place of love and celebration, rather than a searing excavation of the truth”–Washington City Paper.

In English and in Portuguese and Spanish with English subtitles.

(PG-13, 103 min., 2023)

Admission: $12 adult, $10 student + senior, $8 child. Eligible for the Youth Arts Access Fund.
