    • Synopsis
    • How should we live? A question asked by philosophers and the masses alike, and one which Seymour Bernstein has been cultivating an answer to over 50 years of pianoplaying.

      Bernstein, the octogenarian master pianist, choose to forgo a promising career as a concert pianist in order to teach thusrevealing his profound world-view, a breathtakingly clear-headed perspective on art, personal commitment to it and the overarching and essential value extending beyond and
      into all aspects of life.

      Ethan Hawke, one of his greatest admirers, takes us into Bernstein’s world with this delicately crafted film offering a wise and charismatic reflection on art and life.
