Rhythm Is It! – TV-Tip of the Week
Berlin in January 2003: In an old bus depot in the industrial port to study a 250 Berlin children from 25 different nations Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps. Is choreographed by the project, Royston, the musical director of the Berlin Philharmonic, Sir Simon Rattle held. All this happens within the first major education project open to the Future @ Bphil initiative that has set itself the goal of the work of the Berlin Philharmonic for the general public and also young people from socially deprived areas of Berlin with the magic of music familiar to make. Many of the participants in this unique project were for the first time in my life on a big stage with a celebrity choreographer and an orchestra of world-class anyway no one had ever worked together.
Example for the variety and diversity of participants, the filmmakers Thomas Grube and Enrique Sánchez Lansch have singled out three individuals, Marie, who still is worried about their secondary school; Olayinka, who recently arrived as a war orphan from Nigeria to Germany , and Martin, who is struggling with his own fears. And actually succeed during the intense rehearsing the daring project of the initiators. Because at the end of the project, all of them appear fresher, more confident and more confident than at the beginning.
Olayinkas depressed look is gone, Marie’s skin appear healthier and Martin is amazed at his newfound openness towards other people. A journey into himself and to one’s own potential, how could it not be far-reaching and destructive cry. And a clear signal that the potential effects of such initiatives.
Already the shooting represented a great adventure, because the work with the dancers were shot on DVCam, as closely as possible to the young apprentice to be tuned simultaneously and respond flexibly. Finally, approximately 200 hours gathered raw material of several months, sifted, analyzed and had to be transcribed, so that the cut of the film took six months to complete. Even the soundtrack required a huge effort, for the soundtrack and the images of the Berlin Philharmonic were recorded in 5.1 surround sound quality and mixed in Dolby Digital, so the mere sound of the movie is a feast for the ears.
If it has not been done to the movies, which can be extremely dramatic documentation of an extraordinary project is now finally watch on television.
