Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story

Country: UK, Language: English, 63 mins

CGiii Comment

A fascinating story in the vein of Searching for Sugarman about the renaissance of musician and trans activist Beverly Glenn-Copeland amongst Japanese record collectors.

In 1986, a sci-fi obsessed woman named Beverly Glenn-Copeland recorded a cassette featuring seven songs using an Atari studio in her Ontario home. She named her quaint folk electronica album ”Keyboard Fantasies” and released it herself. And that was pretty much that. Until three decades later, when Glenn-Copeland – now a man – started to receive emails from all the world, thanking him for his music. It turned out that the album had found an audience thanks to a Japanese record collector. A political and captivating tale about great societal changes and the unpredictability of life.
