THE SOUND OF MUMBAI: A MUSICAL
Co-presented by HBO Documentary Films. The Sound of Music is delightfully reinterpreted in this poignant chronicle of Mumbai slum children who are selected to perform the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical at the city’s elite performing arts center. Director Sarah McCarthy brings new meaning to songs like “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” as the children find inspiration in the music to dream bigger. The film never glosses over the difficulty of closing the gap between rich and poor, but it joyfully expresses the will to try.
