Kinshasa Symphony (PG) S

Two hundred orchestral musicians are playing Beethoven's Ninth when a power cut strikes a few bars before the last movement - this is the least of the worries facing the only symphony orchestra in Congo. In 15 years of existence, they have survived two putsches, immense shortages, and a war. This is a captivating study of people in one of the world's most chaotic cities doing their best to maintain one of the most complex systems of human endeavour: a symphony orchestra. A gorgeous, inspiring testimony to the healing joy of music.
