About the Movie
Between 1939 and 1945, during World War II, developed nations savaged one another: the planet was on fire. In Trinidad & Tobago (the Caribbean) underprivileged urban gangs created a new musical instrument, and perfected it by the 1950s. Since then steelbands have mushroomed in every corner of the planet. Still, Trinidad remains the Mecca, where each year philharmonic orchestras of over 100 musicians, many coming from all countries of the world, compete for the greatest Pan event: the Panaroma. This film is the story or men and women who staked all on their art, and of French, Japanese and Americans, whose passion and daring has drawn them to the world championships. It is a global human adventure out of the ordinary.
