The 1993 movie “Thirty-two Short Films About Glenn Gould” — a 98-minute feature film featuring Colm Feore — will be screened at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre at the Mondavi Center.
The film examines the life of Canadian-born pianist Gould, whose highly idiosyncratic interpretations of J.S. Bach’s “Goldberg” Variations — which Gould recorded in the 1950s and again in the 1980s — have been the subject of much debate and discussion over the decades.
The film approaches Gould’s life and ideas, as well as his eccentricities, through a series of 32 vignettes, painting a portrait by weaving together interviews with those who knew him.
There will be a pre-screening presentation by composer and music faculty member Mika Pelo at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 general, $5 for students, available at www.mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787.
