Brass at the Cinema

"Brassed Off" is a 1996 film about a Brass Band in the UK, about how the Brass Brand brought together people in spite of economic hardship amongst an array of socio-economic issues. This film is unique for the brass player in that the Brass Band is a central focus and puts the movie in context. The movie also is important in that it helps us understand the cultural background of the British Brass Band and why it is in existence today.
