ABOUT THE FILM
All islands aren’t created equal. Laid back and relaxed aren’t exactly words you’d use to describe the Caribbean twin-island republic of Trinidad & Tobago — especially Trinidad during its Carnival season, as it ramps up to the event of Panorama.
Pan! is the story of one country’s beloved and frenzied national steelband competition that turns its city into a musical battleground and friends into impassioned rivals. This doc follows the bands and players that make it to fever-pitched finals round of the competition and slowly reveals just who becomes the new Panorama Champ.
