Crescendo! The Power of Music
Our film is an in-depth, verité based look at three kids — two in West Philadelphia and one in New York City’s Harlem — as they participate in a pair of Sistema-inspired youth orchestra programs. We watch as our kids struggle to master their instruments, confronting their fears along the way, and interacting with their talented, dedicated teachers. We witness the children evolving before our eyes.
Jamie Bernstein / 2014 / 85 minutes / English / USA
The story follows a young girl, passionate about football, and a shopkeeper living in remote village in the desert of Eritrea, on the east coast of Africa. It’s a film about harsh reality, dreams and the blurred line between the two seen thru the eyes of a 6 year old.
