In small towns dotted across New South Wales, classical music doesn’t have much of a place. Michelle Leonard is determined to change that. Every year, she drives across the outback to audition singers for the Moorambilla Voices Choir. This deeply affectionate, and often funny, film follows a group of choir finalists including Aboriginal kids Taylah and Khynan. More than an ode to musical education, this film demonstrates music’s ability to foster empathy and break down cultural differences.

Paired with dirtsong.
