Margarita Fernandez is an Argentine pianist in her 90s. The film records her as a dignified active artist, instead of a pianist of the last years who recalls the glory of the past. The film throws attention to the wrinkled hands on the piano keys, the slow steps and the bright voices ringing on the stage, the friendly advice to young musicians, and the positive attitude towards experimental performance as well as classical music.
As she looks at the camera, she remembers the past, talks about the many pieces she has played, and raises her hand over the piano keys and focuses on herself. At that time, we experience not only the trace of the art she has lived in, but also the power that makes her an “active artist.” (NAM Da-eun)
