They Shot the Piano Player

Jeff Goldblum narrates this animated feature set in Latin America during the 60s and 70s, a fertile period in its musical history that gave us the Bossa Nova, before this musical renaissance was extinguished by authoritarian regimes. The plot focuses on a journalist who seeks to solve the mystery behind the disappearance of a piano prodigy who vanishes, seemingly, into thin air.
