A Sony Pictures Classics release. Opening for one week at The Village East in New York and The Royal in Los Angeles on November 24, 2023, followed by a nationwide release in theaters in early 2024
In this animated documentary from Oscar nominated “Chico and Rita” Directors Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal, a music journalist from New York (voiced by Jeff Goldblum) embarks on a thrilling investigation into the mysterious disappearance of young Brazilian piano virtuoso Tenorio Jr.
They Shot The Piano Player is a celebratory origin story of the world-renowned Latino musical movement Bossa Nova, and it captures a fleeting time bursting with creative freedom at a turning point in Latin American history in the 60s and 70s, just before the continent was engulfed by totalitarian regimes.
