Roqué’s Friday Films: The Blind Piano Tuner (06/04/21)

It is officially the first Friday of the month, and I have a new film to show for the occasion. This month, I offer up something completely different from what I’ve presented so far this year. Filmed on a sunny day this past spring, I’ve been working on this new piece for quite a while now.

I want to save all of the details for when you watch this film, but Mark Newman, a piano tuner based out of Hillsboro, TN, graciously agreed to have me interview him and capture footage of his piano shop. What ensued is the telling of a kind of story that people do not often get to hear. It’s a story about tenacity and a man who, despite challenging circumstances, let his ears and his hands guide him toward a meaningful life doing a valuable trade.

I hope you enjoy watching “The Blind Piano Tuner.” It was an honor for me to get to make this.
