Piano to Zanskar

2020 VIMFF Best Mountain Culture Film

Director: Michal Sulima
Origin: UK
Duration: 86 minutes

Facing his future in retirement, 65 year old piano tuner Desmond O’Keeffe, decides to take on the most challenging and perilous delivery of his four decade career. He’ll transport a 100 year old, 80 kilogram, Broadwood and Sons upright piano, from bustling London to the remote heart of the Indian Himalayas.

Setting off from his Aladdin’s Cave-like workshop in trendy Camden Town, and enlisting the help of two young and eager apprentices, Desmond’s ambitious destination is a primary school in Lingshed, Zanskar. At 14,000 feet above sea level, it is one of the most isolated settlements in the world.

Aided by a team of local Sherpas, as well as a motley crew of yaks and ponies, Desmond and his trusty assistants are tested to their limits both physically and psychologically. As they cross sheer mountain passes of breath-taking beauty, this expedition will be the highest piano delivery in the world. It will be the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: to inspire strength and bring joy.

This incredible film features an original music score by Werner Herzog collaborator, Ernst Reijseger (‘Cave of Forgotten Dreams’).
