Canadian Documentary on Oscar Shortlist

Already with a Gemini win this year, Genius Within: The Inner Life Of Glenn Gould is now competing for an Academy Award.

The Canadian film about pianist Glenn Gould was shortlisted in the best long form documentary category.

Peter Raymont and Michele Hozer’s film explores Gould’s life and music, without becoming distracted with his idiosyncrasies that have  gotten in the way of other documentaries about the world-renowned pianist.

Genius Within is one of 15 documentaries remaining. The final Academy Award nominations will be announced on Jan. 25.
