Kinshasa Symphony (2010) -CONGO A documentary by German directors Claus Wischmann and Martin Baer, “Kinshasa Symphony” shows how people living in one of the most chaotic cities in the world have managed to forge one of the most complex systems of human cooperation ever invented: a symphony orchestra. It is a film about the Congo, about the people of Kinshasa and about music.
This is one of the best movie that I have seen this year. I was able to see the movie through Alliance Franqaise de Chicago on March 17, 2012.
This movie was about culture, people, a passion for music, and just an amazing skill to utilize resources.
This movie made me realize that I wish I knew another language. It is never to late for me to learn. I just have to figure out when I am going to do it.
I thought that I would share this for the week. I look forward to your comments.
