Inhalt

An Instrument for Every Child

The title is the name of the game. Every single one of the over 200,000 primary school children in Germany’s largest federal state will receive a musical instrument of his or her choice, become familiar with it and play it. The film provides insight into an ambitious educational project that is already a subject of discussion all over Germany.


In a region where the past industrial age is still visibly evident, between garden plots and kiosk culture, director Oliver Rauch takes a closer look at four children of different ages and milieus: Kerem and Esraguel, Turkish immigrants; Motomu, Japanese; and Joana, German. He accompanies the young pupils in their classes and families
for a year.


We recall the great Yehudi Menuhin, who once said that social harmony or a positive relationship to nature is not possible without music. Will the music move something in them? And how will the children themselves change their social environment through music?
