Picture 200 musicians playing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in the Congo! Taking a fascinating look at the lone Congolese symphony orchestra, which has persevered through war and other crises, this powerful film is about the Congo, the people of Kinshasa, and the power of music. In French and Lingala with English subtitles.
