Kingston, New York, September 13, 2006. Explorart Films and Cinema Sur announced today that the US premier of the memorable documentary Tocar y Luchar (To Play and To Fight) will be held at the 20th annual meeting of AFIFEST, one of the most influential film festivals in the world. The festival is held every November in Los Angeles, California. Additional screenings of the documentary will be held in cities throughout the world including Rome, Oslo, Brussels, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, and Vancouver. Tocar y Luchar is a powerful documentary about the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra Network, considered by many to be the most successful youth orchestra system in the world. 


To Play and To Fight presents the captivating story of the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra System - an incredible network of hundreds of orchestras formed within most of Venezuela’s towns and villages. Once a modest program designed to expose rural children to the wonders of music, the system has become one of the most important and beautiful social phenomena in modern history. To Play and To Fight presents interviews and performances by many of the world’s most renowned musicians including the great tenor Placido Domingo, Claudio Abbado, Sir Simon Rattle, Guiseppe Sinopoli, and Eduardo Mata, as they reflect on the impact of such a far-reaching social project. The documentary also presents the inspirational stories of world class musicians who have been trained by the Venezuelan system, including the Berlin Philharmonic’s youngest player Edicson Ruiz and world class conductor Gustavo Dudamel. The film was directed by the award winning Venezuelan Director Alberto Arvelo.
