Movie Info

In 2015 1000 musicians coming from all over Italy gathered in Cesena to play "Learn to Fly", the famous Foo Fighters' hit, with the aim of convincing Dave Grohl, the leader of the band, to come and play there. They made a videoclip of the performance and published it on You Tube: the video achieved more than 45 million views and soon after Dave Grohl got the message. He decided to make their dream come true by bringing Foo Fighters to play in the little village only for them. That was the beginning of the adventure of the biggest rock band on earth. WE ARE THE THOUSAND tells the unique story that changed the life of many people. Forever. ​

We Are the Thousand proves a small group can still change things for the better. In a world divided, we can still come together for one common goal.

Strap in for a wonderful display of just how far some people will take a silly idea

The original video made a lot of people cry - including Grohl himself, he admits in the documentary - but what hit me was the pure, unadulterated joy.

While hardly the most Essential of docs you're likely to see this year, We Are the Thousand succeeds as a good-humoured, slyly moving testament to the power of music.

The documentary will make you feel good with its message that diverse people can still unite and honor the things they have in common, rather than focusing on their differences.
