Summary Brasslands is a character-driven feature documentary about the power of music to inform our identities, unite communities, and reach across political borders. 25 year old master trumpeter Dejan Petrovic returns to defend his championship title, as Demiran ÛÊerimoviÛ ̂, a world-class Roma Gypsy trumpeter, struggles against deeply ingrained racism for the opportunity to make money for his family. Through it all, a fish-out-of-water American band plays to validate their very existence in front of a population still scarred by U.S. bombs dropped on Belgrade a decade ago. Brasslands chronicles this bizarre unfolding scene of colliding histories, political tension, and musical ecstasy
