Sunday, Oct. 20 - the MidWest premier in the Twin Cities of BRASSLANDS - the documentary film about the world’s largest festival of the Balkan brass music and trumpet competition in Guča, Serbia

A tiny Serbian village explodes with brass cacophony and riotous celebration as more than half a million music fans descend upon Guča, the world's largest trumpet competition. Amidst a cast of defending Serbian champions and struggling Roma Gypsies, an unlikely brass band from New York City, Zlatne Uste, voyages to represent the United States only a decade after NATO bombs rocked Belgrade. They will be the first Americans ever to compete at Guča. BRASSLANDS offers an intimate and sometimes unsettling portrait of how the hopes and fears of this diverse group of characters collide in their search for common ground and musical ecstasy.

The show of the film is:

Sunday, Oct. 20  at  12:15 pm  - Showplace Icon Theatre,
