Philip Glass doc features Martin Scorsese, Errol Morris


He’s one of the world’s greatest living composers. He’s been nominated for three Academy Awards. He has even been parodied in an episode of South Park, which is truly the culmination of any successful artist’s career. Now, the (non-satirical) spotlight will shine on Philip Glass himself, and not his music.

Koch Lorber films will release Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts. Directed by Scott Hicks (the man who brought you Shine and No Reservations), the documentary was shot in the year and a half before Glass’s 70th birthday. Hicks interviewed Martin Scorsese, Errol Morris and many others for the documentary, so be sure to look out for the film in April to get a look at the man behind the minimalism.
