Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble.
Music/Doc - 92 mins.

A movie that inspires hope and joy.

The film screened at the 2016 New Zealand International Film Festival and was voted best documentary by audiences.

It is one of the most moving films I have seen in a long time. Yo Yo Ma and the other members of the Silk Road Ensemble are not only brilliant musicians, they are inspirational human beings. Their passion for music and their ability to blend the music of different cultures is fully on display in the movie; sometimes their music filled me with joy; at other times it moved me to tears. The most moving scene for me was to see the two Syrian members of the Ensemble going into the Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan and reaching out to the children their with their music and their message of hope. I defy anyone to watch it with dry eyes. Truly a movie for the times we are living in.

If we get a good turn out then we plan to hold regular late night movies based around music and we already have a good selection of new release and old classic films waiting in the wings for the rest of 2017. Admission is a straight $12 and the bar will be open prior to the film screening, serving wine, beer and soft drinks, nibbles, ice cream and coffee also available.

Tickets online and on the door.
