The Entertainers on Director's Cut

Michael Zimmer, Nick Holle, and Faye Ballard appear on the Wisconsin Public Television program Director's Cut.

For thirty-five years, piano players from across the world have strapped on their bow ties, arm garters, and straw boater hats and descended on Peoria, Illinois to battle for the title of World's Greatest Old-Time Piano Player. These players compete to claim glory and to remind the world that ragtime, the first truly American popular music, should not be forgotten just yet. Co-Directors and Producers Michael Zimmer and Nick Holle discuss their film and 5-time Old-Time Piano Player finalist Faye Ballard delights with her amazing talent.
