APPROACH

The narrative goal the director has set is to allow the viewer to see through the keyhole, to capture the time and nature of the rehearsals, the performance of the group, the hours of personal sacrifice, the character and personality of the children and especially of their teacher, the leading character of this story.

The narrative structure is dominated by music, the main subject of the documentary. Music is the tool our characters have chosen to communicate and to express themselves.

We want the viewer to be the leading player and storyteller of this film, drawing its own conclusions, being surrounded with the rehearsals atmosphere, the private lessons, the children’s environment, the tours…

On stage is where the children and the director show their magic and hold us captive. The documentary alternates two live shows in emblematic auditoriums of Barcelona: Palau de la Música and Plaça Catalunya, with its previous preparation.

Without words, we comprehend their performance and communicative abilities.

They are accompanied by American the musicians Jesse Davis, Terell Stafford and Wycliffe Gordon and by established local musicians as Ricard Gili or Esteve Pi.

Joan Chamorro, the conductor, is the true core of the documentary. We want people to know that this exciting project is the result of his work in a local music school, and the children have not been submitted to any cast to take part of this orchestra.

The documentary reveals his unique personality and allows us to understand his unique teaching method.

Iscle, Alba, Andrea, Magalí, Elsa, Eva, Edu… We follow some of the orchestra members. Their learning process and attitudes are shown to us through observation.
