Eve Egoyan featured on ARTS.FILM
The platform ARTS.FILM from The International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) is featuring Duet for Solo Piano, a film from filmmaker Su Rynard on Eve Egoyan and her creative process.
Eve Egoyan is a world-renowned performer of new contemporary music. She is among the 25 greatest Canadian classical pianists of all time. Shot over a year-long period, the film shows Egoyan defying the traditional conceptions of the piano as she searches for her own voice. Born in Victoria, BC, she is the daughter of Armenian artists who immigrated from Cairo to Canada and the sister of the well-known filmmaker Atom Egoyan. The film interweaves past and present, and the personal with the key moments in Egoyan’s career. Duet for Solo Piano offers a rare glimpse at the creative process and the complexity of developing new works that surpass the limits of art, the instrument, and the self. It features collaborators and composers such as Nicole Lizée, John Oswald, David Rokeby, Linda Catlin Smith, and Michael Snow.
