Documentary Brasslands Premieres in US

BrasslandsPoster


The Guča Trumpet Festival, also known as the Dragačevo Assembly, prepares for its 52nd annual edition in Central Serbia, as a documentary following a group of Balkanophile musicians from the U.S., who participated in the festival four years in a row, premieres in Los Angeles and New York.

Brasslands follows this 12-piece band of enthusiastic American-born musicians from New York, as they travel to Serbia to be the first Americans to compete at the renowned Guča festival. For one week of every year, this otherwise insignificant Serbian town explodes with the riotous sounds of half a million brass music fans as bands compete in the world’s biggest trumpet contest.
