BROKEN ORCHESTRA

Charlie Tyrell

A documentary short about the Symphony for a Broken Orchestra which collected hundreds of broken instruments from the Philadelphia public school system, fixed them and then returned them into the hands of students.

Communities banding together isn’t a new concept but this uniquely shot documentary is. The camera work along with creative interviews brings this poignant story to the next level. Saving instruments just became the coolest. — Elle S. (Programmer)
