Let Yourself Go - The life of jazz pianist Fred Hersh (PAL)

The New Yorker Fred Hersch is one of the best Jazz pianists and composers of his generation. His musical work is remarkable, and so is his way of life.

Fred Hersch, now 53 years old, has been HIV positive for twenty years. His disease progressed to AIDS only a few years ago. He was one of the first Jazz musicians who publicly came out as gay.

Openly and well-humoured, he speaks about his life, his career with all its ups and downs and about his music - the vital force that empowers him to live with his illness.

Filmmaker Katja Duregger has followed Fred Hersch over a period of two years. She shot much of the material by herself, which enabled her to produce a very intimate and moving portrait of this exceptional musician.

"I can´t be a road pianist, I can´t be a band leader full time, I can´t be a teacher full time, I can´t be a composer full time. I like going in between the different things. That´s what interests me much more than being just a jazz star."
(Fred Hersch, 2007)
