ABOUT THE FILM:     THE WIZARD ROCKUMENTARY: A MOVIE ABOUT ROCKING AND ROLWING documents the wizard rock community during the year leading up to the release of the final Harry Potter book (July 2007), the rise of wizard rock bands from less than 30 to over 450, and their journey from obscurity to international media coverage. Their story will inspire you to take a chance, do what you love, and see what magic happens. With footage of numerous wizard rock shows beginning at HPEF's Lumos 2006 this documentary delves into the world of wizard rock from the viewpoint of fans, for fans. Wizard rock is a music movement unlike any other, raising thousands of dollars for literacy programs and other non-profits, and inspiring kids to be as fearless as Harry in their creativity.     Enter a world where music is magic, love is power, and reading is cool.    Source: filmmaker
