Duet For Solo Piano unfolds over a one-year period as Eve defies the traditional conceptions of piano and pianist on a journey to find her own voice.
Born in Victoria B.C. Canada, Eve is the daughter of Armenian artists who emigrated from Cairo. She is also the sister of renown filmmaker Atom.
The film weaves the past and present, the personal with musical moments, exploring the events that have shaped Eve and left their mark on who she is today.
Beautifully photographed and crisply edited, the film offers rare insight into the creative process and the complexity of developing new work that pushes the boundaries of art, instrument and self.
“If I don’t play the piano I get a bit lost,” says Eve Egoyan, “ I feel I am missing a core part of myself.”
“What I learned in my journey to represent another,” says Director Su Rynard, “was that to know Eve, to understand her, was to meet her in the place where she is her most intimate self. The piano is her landscape, her safe place, her true home. Paradoxically when she is inside her music, she is truly revealed.”
“I am grateful to my key collaborates,” says Rynard, ”cinematographer John Price, editor Caroline Christie and sound designer Phil Strong. “These people are incredible artists in their own right to whom I am deeply indebted.“
