Storyline

Profiles six competitors in the 2004 Annual Whistler's Convention, held in Louisburg, North Carolina. We hear them whistle, and they and others talk about whistling as a way to relax, cheer up, entertain, express emotion, and enjoy life. Each talks about how others see their hobby. Joe is older, competing after a ten years break. Chris uses interesting sounds to spice up his performances. Graham stays with the melody, as does Sandra. Steve is smooth, a multi-year champion. Geert is new, having come with his wife from the Netherlands for the competition. First the prelims, then the finals. Clips from films illustrate the qualities of whistling.

Beautiful ...

Whistling: "It comes from the heart ... the mind .. the thoughts that 'pass by' ... that you want to get out" - as one whistler in the show said.

This movie was absolutely fantastic. Like those in the film say, there really is something uplifting about whistling.

Though whistling seems to be a dying art, this documentary shows that master whistling is still very much alive. It shows up in the rural mid-west in the form of a turkey driver to a big metropolitan city in the form of an investment banker. The show also follows several of the top contestants at the 2004 National Whistling Competition (it's really an international competition with international awards) in Louisburg, North Carolina. They talk about how they started whistling and how it affects their daily lives.

We also hear a little bit about the history of whistling, how some foreign cultures incorporate it in their communications, and about the different types of whistling (throat, palatal, pucker, finger, etc.).

I'm not really a fan of whistling, but I'm glad that I got to see this unusual topic being explored. It's well done and worth a watch.
