For Piano to Zanskar

The story of the world’s highest-altitude piano delivery

The multi award-winning  film follows 65 year old London piano maker Desmond O’Keeffe as he endeavours to deliver a piano from his piano repair shop  , to the village school in Lingshed, a remote community high up in the Indian Himalayas.

★★★★★ “Hits sweet notes…A fascinating musical odyssey” The Hollywood Reporter

 ★★★★.“Delightfully, disarmingly surreal” HeyUGuys

Desmond and his team make the trek from his piano repair shop in Camden Town, London to Zanskar, one of the most remote places on Earth, where Lingshed is situated.
Navigating dangerous mountain passes, wayward Sherpas and some of the most stunning scenery in the world, Desmond’s journey to Lingshed captures spiritual resilience,
passion for music, the unrelenting progress of civilisation, and the beauty of nature.
If successful, the expedition will be the highest piano delivery in the world. More importantly, it will be the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: to inspire strength and bring joy. Can
they make it?

Piano To Zanskar features an original music score by Werner
Herzog collaborator Ernst Reijseger (Cave of Forgotten
