Keyboard Fantasies – Film Screening, Special Guest Performance and Q & A

Tickets $10

Trans Connect and the Capitol Theatre present this film screening featuring a live performance by singer/composer, Luzura Ramos-Swanston, and a post-movie Q & A!

As a sci-fi obsessed woman living in near isolation, Beverly Glenn-Copeland wrote and self-released Keyboard Fantasiesin Huntsville, Ontario back in 1986. Recorded in an Atari- powered home studio, the cassette featured seven tracks of a curious folk-electronica hybrid, a sound realised far before its time.

Three decades on the musician – now Glenn Copeland – began to receive emails from people across the world, thanking him for the music they’d recently discovered. Courtesy of a rare- record collector in Japan, a reissue of Keyboard Fantasiesand subsequent plays by Four Tet, Caribou and more, the music had finally found its audience two generations down the line.

Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Storysees the protagonist commit his life and music to screen for the first time – an intimate coming of age story spinning pain and the suffering of prejudice into rhythm, hope and joy.

Half aural-visual history, half DIY tour-video, the film provides a vehicle for our newly appointed queer elder to connect with youth across the globe. A timely lullaby to soothe those souls struggling to make sense of the world.
