Jimmy Playing With Time

80 minutes, 1976

New Zealand-born 73-year-old Jimmy Montecasino tries to beat his own world record (set in 1950 at 176 3/4 hours) for marathon piano playing. The event was held during the 1976 Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. Montecasino collapsed after 117 hours 20 minutes. The voice of Ken James as «the voice of time» provides a hallucinating dialogue with Montecasino.
