A feature length documentary, by filmmaker Christine Shaw, which gives audiences a real look at the challenges bands and players overcome to play steel pan in Brooklyn.

A STORY OF PERSEVERANCE, PASSION, AND LOVE
IN THE NAME OF PAN


Check out the trailer below!

The documentary follows a vibrant community of people in Brooklyn, NY who love steel pan and are fighting to keep it alive in Brooklyn. Through their preparation for an annual steel band competition, known as Panorama, we see how their love and passion helps them to overcome several challenges and obstacles facing the pan community in Brooklyn.

Through the lens of Steel Xplosion’s journey to Panorama, viewers get a raw look into what life is like in the pan yard and why pan players are willing to sacrifice so much for the opportunity to play pan in Brooklyn and to compete on a national stage. As a newly formed band in 2013, we see how the players in Steel Xplosion preserved through a challenging summer to come out on top.
