ABOUT THE FILM

Sandra Ignagni could hear music coming from the streets at her home on Vancouver’s Commercial Drive. It just so happened that she was studying documentary filmmaking and looking for a story. Officially known as ‘The Carnival Band’, they call themselves tricksters, and rabble-rousers. Their vast repertoire includes original tunes from their members as well as samba, calypso, swing, Afrobeat, jazz, funk, disco, and folk. Follow this inclusive and lively group of trained and neophyte musicians as they wander the streets, with band leader Tim Sars, to see how they’ve been making the neighbourhood smile for over ten years. Sorry not website nor trailer for this one.
