Filmmaker Stacey Tenenbaum's refreshing new documentary "Pipe Dreams" challenges some off-the-mark preconceptions about an age-old instrument — the pipe organ — while also taking viewers inside the high-stakes world of competitive organ music. The film charts the journeys of four prodigiously talented organ players during the run-up to the Canadian International Organ Competition, regarded by many as the Olympics for organ music. Held every three years in Montreal, the event forces competitors to confront their worst pressures and anxieties.
