Musical Chairs

80 min.   |   Portuguese   |   Brazil, 2011

Musical Chairs takes the viewer into a heated contest for a unique prize. In one corner, the undisputed champion: Music; in the other: the musicians. Ricardo, Catherine, Byron, Rodrigo and Rodney - all talented young musicians - vie for a place in a symphony orchestra in Belo Horizonte, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The film reveals the conflict, passion and discipline that the artistic impulse demands.
