Differently Seen - Differently Experienced 12+Short Film

The Best Orchestra in the World

A group of double bassists are waiting for their turn at an orchestra audition. The auditionees must play behind a curtain so that the jury can evaluate them on their skills alone. One of the musicians doesn’t seem to fit in but keeps on trying despite the high doorknobs.
