Description

NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE Three children from the impoverished Venezuelan district of Las Brisas channel their pain and joy into music as part of a unique, government-sponsored orchestral music program, El Sistema. For ten years, as her native Venezuela gradually collapsed in the background, director Marianela Maldonado followed the students, developing an intimacy that gives their story so much heart. Uplifting, poignant, and filled with gorgeous classical music, this film is a testament to the power of music to change and enrich lives. – Karen McMullen

The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with Marianela Maldonado, Luisa De La Ville, cinematographer Robin Todd, editor Ricardo Acosta, subject Wully Arteaga
