Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that the classical music documentary Tocar y Luchar is now available on DVD at www.tocaryluchar.com.

To Play and To Fight is a film about the youth orchestra system in Venezuela, considered by many to be the most successful youth orchestra program in the world. The documentary is currently being screened at Film and Music Festivals throughout the world and in many orchestras and music schools, including the Berlin Philharmonic, The Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome, and the Sibelius Academy in Finland. The US premier of the documentary will take place in Los Angeles this November during the Annual American Film Institute Festival (AFIFEST). The film includes appearances and performances by some of the world's top musicians such as Placido Domingo, Claudio Abado, Sir Simon Rattle, Kate Royale, and the new young conducting sensation Gustavo Dudamel, among many others.

"A transcendent journey that showcases the power of music and its ability to promote positive social change" AFIFEST

"A visually, aurally and emotionally rewarding film" Vancouver International Film Festival
