To Breathe As One
Every five years, 30,000 people gather in Estonia to join voices and form the largest choir in the world at the national song festival Laulupidu.
"To Breathe as One" explores the Estonian Song Festival through the eyes of the San Francisco-based Piedmont East Bay Children's Choir, one of the few American choirs invited to participate.
Music has played an integral role in Estonians maintaining strength for over 150 years. The film reveals how singing is not just a means of cultural expression, but a defining part of identity.
