Kinshasa Symphony

The awarded film about a symphony orchestra in the Congo

Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste / Armand Diangienda

The film: Two hundred orchestral musicians are playing Beethoven’s Ninth – “Freude schoener Goetterfunken”. A power cut strikes just a few bars before the last movement. Problems like this are the least of the worries facing the only symphony orchestra in the Congo. In the 15 years of its existence, the musicians have survived two putsches, various crises and a war. But concentration on the music and hopes for a better future keeps them going. Kinshasa Symphony is a study of people in one of the world’s most chaotic cities doing their best to maintain one of the most complex systems of joint human endeavour: a symphony orchestra. The film is about the Congo, the people in Kinshasa and the power of music.

A superb and affecting documentary about some highly unusual musicians, the staggering challenges they face in heir everyday lives, the amazing city they live in and the ower of Beethoven‘s Ninth.” Die Zeit
