The Zen Of Bennett is a seductive and soulful view into the mind of singer Tony Bennett as well as an intimate portrait of the artist’s creative process as he turns 85 years old. In a first person narrative, Tony reflects back over his 60 year career while looking ahead within the context of his latest recording project. We experience inspirational insights as Tony discusses his philosophies of life, lessons learned, and his passion for art and music. Artfully filmed by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe, the documentary employs a voyeuristic approach while exploring and illustrating the isolation
experienced by the artist in the midst of the whirlwind of activity that surrounds Tony during the recording. The film is a stylistic and compelling meditation of contradictions: memories and reality, crowded rooms and isolation, art and
commerce, family and career, a golden age and a brave new world, the icon and the everyman.
