Music transforms people’s lives. Street Pianos transform cities. This film is about generating more street pianos across the globe.
You are invited to the London Premiere of Instrument of Change: Street Piano, an award-winning documentary film about street pianos made by Maureen Ni Fiann and Tom Rochester. The film has been screened at a variety of film festivals including in South Korea, Glasgow and Los Angeles.
The film is the culmination of three years work and the co-directors are delighted that most of the people who feature in it will be at the screening. It’s a big “thank you” to all involved, as well as a celebration of street pianos and the people that play them.
“Acoustic pianos in the western world are going to landfill. It’s like burning books. This film is about recycling these everyday instruments, diverting them from the dump to an urban community where they can spread their magic” – Maureen Ni Fiann.
After the film screening there will be a Q and A session with several of those involved, followed by live piano music (all are welcome to play a tune), drinks and a party.
