Directed by Anita Rivaroli



In 2015, 1000 musicians coming from all over Italy gathered in Cesena to play “Learn to Fly”, the famous Foo Fighters' hit, with the aim of convincing Dave Grohl, the leader of the band, to come and play there. They made a videoclip of the performance and published it on You Tube: the video achieved more than 45millions views and soon after Dave Grohl got the message. He decided to make their dream come true by bringing Foo Fighters to play in the little village only for them. 

That was the beginning of the adventure of the biggest rock band on earth. WE ARE THE THOUSAND tells the unique story that changed the life of many people. Forever.
