DVD 709004


A 2010 film by Claus Wischmann and Martin Baer. ‘Two hundred orchestral musicians are playing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. A power cut strikes just a few bars before the last movement. Problems like this are the least of the worries facing the only symphony orchestra in the Congo. In the fifteen years of its existence, the musicians have survived two putsches, various crises and a war. But concentration on the music and hopes for a better future keeps them going. Kinshasa Symphony is a study of people in one of the world’s most chaotic cities doing their best to maintain one of the most complex systems of joint human endeavour: a symphony orchestra. The film is about the Congo, the people in Kinshasa and the power of music’. Includes 10′ bonus feature. Total running time approx. 105′. PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A BLU-RAY DISC. BLU-RAY DISC PLAYER REQUIRED
