About the Film:

This moving and touching documentary takes us into the everyday lives of the members of an unlikely orchestra: the Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste, located in Kinshasa, a city of 10 million inhabitants and capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, a place ravaged by war, endemic poverty and corruption. A true testament to the power of music, this documentary shows how the love of music can help transcend all.

Gateways Music Festival’s President & Artistic Director Lee Koonce will be joined by several Gateways musicians for a post-showing audience talkback.

Co-sponsored by the Rochester Association of Black Journalists and in partnership with The Black Cinema Series.

Tickets are $5. DIRECT TICKET LINK.
