THE SILENT EYE is a highly intimate, impressionistic portrait of the unspoken rapport between Cecil Taylor and Min Tanaka – two masters of their form who have collaborated for over thirty years.

Shot in New York at Cecil’s home over three days, the film plays out as a timeless, elegant conversation between the two men - at once meditative and highly moving.
