NCC’s Movies-of-the-Month free Film Series continues with a screening of the 2010 film "Kinshasa Symphony," an inspiring film about the African Congo, the people of its third-largest city (Kinshasa), and the power of music.
"Kinshasa Symphony" will be shown at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, November 15 in the East Campus PepsiCo Theater. Admission is free; the public is invited.
The film is about 200 people in one of the world’s poorest and most chaotic cities who struggle against seemingly impossible odds to maintain a symphony orchestra.
Prof. Hannah Moeckel-Rieke of NCC’s English and ESL departments will host the screening.
Directed by Claus Wischmann and Martin Baer, this award-winning film deserves to be seen, but you won’t catch a film like this at the local multiplex. Come and witness this remarkable story.
