The Violin Teacher
(Tudo Que Aprendemos Juntos)

  •   Sergio Machado
  •   Brazil


After a nerve-rattling audition for the renowned São Paulo Symphonic Orchestra, concert violinist Laerte reluctantly takes a position teaching teens at a school in Heliopolis, the largest favela in São Paulo. Confronted with obstacles at every turn, Laerte and his students use music to navigate new paths and unfamiliar worlds, and, in the process, find unexpected connections. Inspired by real events, this finely wrought, moving story is a celebration of the transformative power of music. Portuguese with subtitles.


Co-presented by the Consulate General of Brazil in Chicago
