“Jazz and animation make for strong bedfellows in [this] film from Spanish directors Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal that represents an intriguing hybrid in all sorts of ways.” — Variety
A New York music journalist goes on a quest to uncover the truth behind the mysterious disappearance of young Brazilian piano virtuoso Tenório Jr. A celebratory origin story of the world-renowned Latino musical movement Bossa Nova, They Shot The Piano Player captures a fleeting time bursting with creative freedom at a turning point in Latin American history in the 60s and 70s, just before the continent was engulfed by totalitarian regimes.
From the Oscar-nominated Spanish team behind Chico & Rita and narrated by Jeff Goldblum, They Shot the Piano Player is a globe-trotting and passionate ode to a music genre that swept throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
