Two Of Us : Lucy Gershwin And Simon Tedeschi
This 13-part documentary series is based on the column of the same name in the Good Weekend Magazine, a column that has been running for nine years. Two Of Us charts the most unlikely of pairings and celebrates all kinds of human relationships: romantic love, family bonds, friendship or the extraordinary tenderness that can occur between strangers. Australia's most brilliant young pianist, Simon Tedeschi, was first placed in front of a keyboard at eighteen months by his grandmother Lucy Gershwin, a Holocaust survivor. Their relationship is a story about music, the Holocaust and the true nature of inheritance. Proud, passionate and over-bearing matriarch Lucy has left her mark on Simon, who was a child prodigy and now at 25, is a very successful musician. Lucy has a story to tell about her experience of the Holocaust and, until her recent death, she dedicated herself to the Sydney Jewish Museum where she regularly guided school groups. Lucy died, aged 90, during the filming of the series. Directed by Jane Schnieder. (Commissioned by SBS Independent, in English)
