SISTEMA REVOLUTION follows the inception, development and success of Venezuela's life-changing music program, El Sistema, and how the movement is catching on in other communities. The documentary sheds further light on this revolutionary program which allows any child to attend free music classes - including an instrument to practice with - regardless of their ability to pay. It's a flagship of national achievement and is creating transformative social change, artistic excellence and producing/exporting musicians of extraordinary quality.

For the government, Sistema is essentially a social project; an engine for human development. Poverty means loneliness, sadness, anonymity. For the children of Sistema, an orchestra means joy, motivation, teamwork and the aspiration to success.

SISTEMA REVOLUTION reveals how music changes the lives of children, their families and of entire communities.
