Rogier Kappers

In midlife crisis, Rogier Kappers decides to pursue a boyhood dream: to become a famous musician on the glass organ. A glorious coming-of-old-age docu comedy.

In this original and funny self-portrait, moving between hope, despair and heartbreak, Rogier Kappers pursues a childhood dream: to become a famous musician playing the glass organ, an instrument made of singing glasses. We follow Rogier for a seven year period on his quest for fame, love and fortune: From building his first organ and getting an autograph from his idol Arvo Pärt, to a disastrous trip to Dubai and frantic work on his sinking holiday house. A glorious coming-of-old-age drama.
