Synopsis
VIOLINS FOR ST. PAULI tells the moving story of an elementary school class in the district of St. Pauli, one of the deprived neighbourhoods in the city of Hamburg. Thanks to the unique commitment of the musician Gino Romero-Ramirez, children begin playing the violin at the age of seven. It is a difficult instrument, but Ramirez is so inspiring, that his pupils keep playing with surprising zeal for three years. This requires a lot of teaching experience in addition to steady nerves, patience and agood sense of humour. The film accompanies the class from the first wrong notes to the final concert.
