Tocar y Luchar :  To Play and To Fight

The captivating story of the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra System – an incredible network of hundreds of orchestras formed within most of Venezuela’s towns and villages.  Once a modest programme designed to expose rural children to the wonders of music, the system has become globally renowned.   The documentary portrays the inspirational stories of world class musicians trained by the Venezuelan system including world renowned conductor Gustavo Dudamel.  The educational programme is now being introduced around the UK including in Lambeth.

Jerusalem ... The east side story 

Under the Israeli occupation. . Israel has pursued a policy of Judaizing the city, aiming to achieve “Jewish demographic superiority.” Part of this policy is to drive Palestinian Muslims and Christians out of the city; denying their presence, history, and ties to the land. The documentary takes you on a journey exposing Israel’s policy to gain supremacy and hegemony over the city and its inhabitants. It also touches on the future of the city: Jerusalem is the key to peace; without Jerusalem, there is no peace for anyone.


Q and A with with Leah L evane, Chair of the local Palestine Solidarity Campaign who went on the recent Viva Palestine convoy which broke the siege of Gaza


Presented   by the  East London Palestine Solidarity Campaign in conjunction with Café Crema , New Cross .
