Well! This orchestra makes no money anymore! Then your time is limited here! I’ll die for the music, someone cried out! The orchestra hired a new conductor and a marketing director. But did that help? They are on the verge of a steep hill downwards, and moments from losing their jobs…Will the orchestra survive? A film team follows the life of an orchestra from the inside in this extraordinary documentary. Winner of Prix Italia 2008 in category “TV PERFORMING ARTS – MUSIC AND ART DOCUMENTARIES”

The Jury: “This documentary uses dramatic and observational documentary elements to clarify the issues for viewers and increase audience engagement, without cheapening the subject matter. The piece has a clear narrative structure, with characters and conflicts, but avoids over-simplifying any of the participant’s positions. It achieves a good balance between entertainment and substance, and uses music and editing very effectively. The editorial choice of subject matter is particularly pleasing as the piece explores a current issue which faces many orchestras in other parts of the world.”
