RPL Film Theatre, in co-operation with Blue Sky Cultural Connections, presents two important documentary films highlighting the importance of music to community and people in two very different parts of the world. Both films explore the value of music education to communities and young people in particular, a theme that is central to the whole Playing for Change movement, and Playing for Change Day 2017.
They Will Have to Kill Us First! (2015) Where there is oppression, there is often courage. This film follows musicians in Mali as they fight for the right to continue playing music after Islamic extremists ban all forms of traditional and contemporary music in that country. Wide Open Sky (2015) follows the heart-warming story of a children’s choir in the outback of Australia and the impact of direct participation for children from poor, remote communities who don’t have regular access to music education.
