Twelve Pianos, followed by Q&A with Dean Mermell and Mauro ffortissimo of
Sunset Piano. Your ticket purchase for Twelve Pianos goes directly to
supporting Flower Piano 2017, a privately funded collaboration between San
Francisco Botanical Garden Society and Sunset Piano.
This is the first public screening of Twelve Pianos since it
made its world debut at the Green Film Festival in April. Twelve Pianos is a
story of music, culture, and poetry, determined to survive against all odds.
Like beautiful weeds growing unnoticed through cracks in the sidewalk, the film
showcases everyday superstars who walk among us, with a deep passion for the
arts that will not fit neatly into a box. Filmmaker Dean Mermell and a small,
dedicated crew capture the incredible sights and sounds of this unusual passion
project, in a film that asks: As the world rushes headlong into an unknown
future, what good things from the past are worth saving?
Space is limited and tickets are available by advance sale only here.
