A SLUM SYMPHONY – ALLEGRO CRESCENDO

This documentary is about the work of José Antonio Abreu who, in Venezuela, rescued three hundred and fifty thousand from kids from poverty and misery by creating an orchestra system. Abreu’s is a truly impressive social project, of the kind that still gives you hope in the human race. Venezuela is rich in oil but its people are often desperately poor. In this situation took root a system that unites 157 orchestras and music schools scattered across the country. Studying music is free in the areas worst off socially and economically. For five years the director followed five poverty-stricken Venezuelan kids through their rescue through music, watching them grow from children to adolescents.
