synopsisThis film has a 500 limit of views
The camera makes its way through the clarinets, tubas, kettledrums, and trumpets at a rehearsal for a brass orchestra, whose members are made up of amateur musicians who work for the public transport authority. The film captures the sharply cut, charismatic, and highly concentrated faces of musicians: Warsaw tram drivers playing music after their shift.
