It’s time to grab the popcorn and gather the family around the computer, because we have your new offering for the USO Theater from Snag Films!
This week’s documentary is Ballou; here’s the synopsis from Snag Films:
“Members of the Ballou Senior High School Marching Band rise above their violence-filled Washington, D.C., neighborhood in this documentary, which follows the group as they try to achieve their dream of winning the national marching band competition. Inspired by their tireless director, Darrell Watson, and helped by a dedicated team of volunteers, the musical teens put their heads, hearts and souls into making the band the best it can be.”
