Music documentary. Emerging from years in isolation to an enraptured crowd, a time-travelling, transgender musical genius finally finds his place in the world. In 1986 Beverly Glenn-Copeland wrote and self-released Keyboard Fantasies, seven tracks of a curious folk-electronica hybrid, a sound way ahead of its time. Three decades later the musician – now transitioned into Glenn Copeland – starts to receive emails from people across the world, thanking him for the music they’d recently discovered. Courtesy of a rare-record collector in Japan, a reissue of Keyboard Fantasies and subsequent plays by Four Tet, Caribou and more, the music had finally found its audience two generations down the line.
