Music and Film Series- The Pianist

The Pianist is based on the autobiography of Polish pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman, who was playing Chopin’s Nocturne in C-sharp minor live on the air in a Warsaw radio station when the first German bombs fell.  Szpilman’s harrowing tale both honours and gives voice to the millions, many of whom are faceless and nameless, who perished not only in the Holocaust itself but also in the war and its accompanying methods of killing.   The Pianist premiered at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Palme d'Or. It received widespread critical acclaim, and many more awards including Best Director, Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor (Brody) at the 75th Academcy Awards. It also won the BAFTA Award for Best Film and BAFTA Award for Best Direction in 2003.  Introduced by Dr Robert Taub, Arts Institute Director of Music  Director: Roman Polanski, France, 2002  Cast: Adrien Brody, Ruth Platt, Julia Rayner, Frank Finlay, Maureen Lipman  Running time: 143 mins
