It's so lively and infectious, you'll be dancing in your seat! With its heart-pumping blend of trumpets, drums and other brass instruments, Brasslands – directed by a 10-person collective of filmmakers – sets out to explore Balkan music as half a million people descend upon a tiny Serbian village for the 50th anniversary of the world's largest trumpet festival. The film not only captures this special music and its spirit, but also what music means to this region and how they see themselves in the world.

Followed by live music by Lungs Face Feet

Ticket also includes admittance to the Opening Night Gala at Pittsburgh Filmmakers, 477 Melwood Ave. Pittsburgh PA, 15213.
