Shut Up and Play the Piano

Philipp Jedicke
82 min

The son of Hungarian Jews who fled to Canada during the war, musician Jason Beck, better known as Chilly Gonzales, is a boundary-breaking artist. A Grammy-winning composer and virtuoso pianist, his career over the last two decades has been defined by his continuous exploration of radically different influences, from punk and rap to chamber music. This wild and free-spirited documentary – featuring many of his collaborators over the years, including Daft Punk, Feist, Jarvis Cocker and Peaches – perfectly captures Gonzales’ incredible energy.

“A preposterous spectacle, but admirably ambitious and highly entertaining. Life is a comedy-punk cabaret, old chum.” – The Hollywood Reporter
