Keyboard Fantasies, dir. Posy Dixon, UK 2019, 62 min., English


Created on an Atari home studio in rural Canada and originally self-released only on cassette, Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s 1986 album Keyboard Fantasies languished in obscurity for nearly 30 years. But after its rediscovery by a Japanese record collector in 2015, the cult classic found a worldwide audience – and led the musician, now Glenn Copeland, to embark on his first international tour at the age of 74.

Part biopic and part tour documentary, Posy Dixon’s debut feature follows Copeland’s emergence from years of isolation. Tracking five decades of relentless musical output amid shifting manifestations of gender and sexual identity, Keyboard Fantasies celebrates the unpredictable rhythms of life through the prism of this extraordinary musician.

Director Posy Dixon joins us for a special screening and Q&A on Saturday 13 November
