Rhythm Is It!

Berlin, January 2003. In a former bus depot something amazing is happening. 250 pupils from 25 nations are dancing to Stravinsky′s Sacre du Printemps, which they have rehearsed for nearly three months,

trained by the British choreographer Royston Maldoom and accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under its chief conductor, Sir Simon Rattle.
Through the eyes of three young protagonists we take part in the project′s development, its ups and downs, doubts and enthusiasms, uncertainties and renewals of self-confidence. It is a fascinating journey into new, undreamed-of worlds and reveals surprising facets of the protagonists′ personalities. Recorded with a breathtaking fidelity of sound, the film documents the stages of the Sacre project and offers deep insights into the rehearsals of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Rhythm is it! is a delightful and moving record of the fascination of music, of the need for safeguarding education and training, of passion, diligence, love, esteem and zest.
