Grand Orchestra

  • Argentina
Audio Tracks 

The film begins with the rescue of an old trunk and inside the meeting of the full scores of the orchestra Hector and his jazz (1944-1962), one of the most important big bands in Argentina in those years. This finding triggered a rough search of the members of the orchestra and brings out several questions about the importance of personal file as a cultural legacy.
Grand Orchestra speaks of a mythical orchestra of Buenos Aires but also of the fable in the in evocative fact of remembering since the meeting with the orphaned files, as a journey to an inevitably personal and subjective story.
