London Film Screening: Escape from Luanda

Film Screening: Escape from Luanda by Phil Grabsky
Films are Free, but booking is required at

In Luanda, one of the world’s poorest and most dangerous places, three students from Angola’s only music school work towards their end-of-year concert. The Music School is Angola’s first and only school of its kind. It houses some 80 students, most of them desperately poor. Many face disapproval and outright rejection from their families who can’t see a future in music. This film asks if, despite the ravages of 27 years of civil war, musical passion can overcome terrible hardships.

‘a tender, inspiring portrait of three war-weary musicians – with a very funky soundtrack’. Radio Times
