Shine (Instrument of Hope)

5 mins


After the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in 2018, the song “Shine” written by students Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Pena became an anthem for the event’s survivors. The trumpet — most notably, the Instrument of Hope, a trumpet made from spent bullet casings — plays a significant role in this film as arranger and composer Kim Scharnberg gathers 66 of the finest trumpet players in LA and NYC to record a new version of “Shine.” The film provides an inside peek at these historic sessions, giving every viewer a little dose of healing.
