FOR THE LEFT HAND
A DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT RESILIENCE AND THE POWER
OF MUSIC IN THE SHADOW OF TRAUMA
At age 5, Norman Malone discovered he was a natural at the piano. Tragically, when Norman turned 10, he was attacked, leaving him paralyzed on his right side. Undaunted, Malone began a lifelong quest to reclaim his place at the piano- mastering some of the most difficult music ever written for left hand alone – and never telling anyone of his deepening virtuosity. In 2015, at age 78, Malone revealed his story (to the Chicago Tribune), prompting belated invitations to perform across America. Nearly 70 years after his tragic attack, Malone launches a much-delayed, triumphant concert career.
FOR THE LEFT HAND aims to open discussion and spark positive action on disability, aging, race, and the overall importance of music and art.
