On Rue Bosquet, a small street in Brussels, two identical buildings stand side by side. One is the home of the Tiempo-Lechner family, known for its long lineage of piano prodigies. Matriarch Lyl Tiempo presides over her renowned children, Sergio Tiempo and Karin Lechner, as well as Karin’s daughter, Natasha. At only 14, Natasha is already a busy performer who carries the weight of her musical heritage on her shoulders. She asks: What does it actually mean to be a pianist? If there is an answer, it is to be found in the house next door, at the home of the famous Argentine concert pianist Martha Argerich, who opens her doors and reveals an inner life that is still filled with uncertainty: At the age of 70, she is still on a quest for perfection. In Spanish, English, and French with English subtitles.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
