WHEN FRIED EGGS FLY

Large_film_12737887_photo1

A musical journey for all generations, When Fried Eggs Fly reorients the way we think about education. Bruce Mack, a music teacher at New York City's P.S. 3, decides to take on the challenge of getting 162 8-years-olds to compose, perform, and record an original piece of music on the topic of saving the environment. Mack, who is both a fascinating character and an inspiring teacher, feels that "music creates an opportunity to understand one another in a different way." Through collaborative work and rigorous brainstorming sessions, the students learn an incredible amount and cultivate a strong desire to make the performance a smashing hit. Soon the teachers and parents are invited to help out, and the adults prove to be just as nervous as the kids. When Fried Eggs Fly is a remarkable documentary about the creative process, which will have you singing in your seat and humming all the way home.
