An Inspiring and Wonderful Film
19 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We here at Indie Friendlie really love this compelling and informative film.

Gustavo Dudamel, music director for the LA Philharmonic, is a champion of Venezuela's "La Systema", the public music program that provides students with classical music instruments and instructions. What's more interesting is the fact that he's also a product of the now-global program.

This film, expertly shot and well-paced, is a joy to watch because it's not Dudamel who is the star of the film: it's the children.

These children, from the high rise apartment buildings in Tokyo to the drug-war ravaged villages of Colombia, find self-esteem and purpose in learning to play an instrument and be a part of an orchestra.

Don't worry that you don't know anything about classical music. Just listen to what "the dude" has to say, and watching the children come to life as a result of this remarkable program.
