Flying from the fingertips documents immersive training initiatives on arts for childhood. Stressing the importance of voice, movement and improvisation in the personal development of professionals working with children, these immersive experiences culminate in performances dedicated to infants and toddlers. The documentary gives voice to the trainees who participated in these creative processes and who reported that more than a formative process they have lived a strong transformative experience. At the forefront of work on music for social and human development, Flying from the fingertips illustrates how a shared educational philosophy on arts for childhood can help create a better world.
