Shut Up and Play the Piano

International Competition

(Germania, Regno Unito / 2018 / 82’)

Born Jason Charles Beck, his stage name is Chilly. Chilly Gonzales. Starting in his own country, Canada, at the end of the Nineties to the biggest Philharmonics in the world, passing through Paris and declaring himself the president of the underground music in Berlin, the artist from Montréal has never stopped to surprise his audience. In his polymorphic career he always continued to reinvent himself, always wearing new and eccentric masks. Through rap intrusions, electronic experimentations and a new solo album performed by piano, the film digs deep into the contradictions of a theatrical character, a true performer who made a real philosophy out of a form of entertainment, as well as his reason to live.
