Magic Pi­ano & The Chopin Shorts

The first fea­ture-length film from Break Thru Films to be shot in stereo­scopic 3-D, Magic Pi­ano tells the story of 10-year old Anna, whose Dad has left her in Poland with her aunt and cousin ChipChip, while he works in Lon­don. Anna, bit­terly miss­ing her fa­ther, de­cides to run away. See­ing her leave, Chip-Chip fol­lows her. To shake him off, she hides in a pile of rub­bish and stum­bles into an old pi­ano, which trans­forms into a mag­i­cal fly­ing ma­chine. Both Anna and Chip-Chip are whisked into the air on some­thing that seems to be a cross be­tween a pi­ano, an air ship, and a gi­ant sail­ing ship. En­dorsed by Lang Lang (who recorded the orig­i­nal sound­track made up of Chopin’s etudes), Magic Pi­ano is pre­sented in this new live for­mat along­side The Chopin Shorts, a col­lec­tion of short films, from award-win­ning an­i­ma­tors. With a gifted young pi­anist per­form­ing the Chopin etudes, this is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for chil­dren of all ages to ex­pe­ri­ence Chopin’s mu­sic within a unique and col­or­ful set­ting in Shang­hai.
