Rhythm Is It!

An extraordinary documentary following Sir Simon Rattle as he takes the reins of the Berlin Philharmonic and embarks on a very special project. He's on a mission to bring classical music to the masses and together with choreographer Royston Maldoom he recruits 250 public school children in order to stage a performance of Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring'. A winning combination of creativity and inspiration, this jubilant celebration of music and movement struck a chord with festival audiences around the world.
