Dudamel: Let the Children Play
Venezuela | 2011 | 84min | 35mm | COLOR | Documentary

PROGRAM NOTE

Youth orchestras are emerging in many countries of the world, inspired by the Venezuelan musical and educational program ‘El Sistema’, which immerses children in the world of music, art, team work, discipline, cooperation, fun, learning, creativity, and high values. Gustavo Dudamel, the amazingly gifted Venezuelan conductor, entirely educated in ‘El Sistema’, leads this journey through the stories of some of the young people who are experiencing the joy of music in the most diverse and contrasting corners of the world. These children are bringing a simple message to all of us: art is a universal right.
