Kaotic Drumline

About This Project

About this film

Kaotic Drumline: Drumming With A Difference is a new documentary short that explores the connections, community presence, and perspective that has earned the Kaotic Drumline, started by Chicago’s Jamie Poindexter, a special place in the hearts of minds of many Chicagoans. The short also provides a glimpse into how Drumline music brings people together with inspiration and vitality.


Created by the production team from the critically-acclaimed new documentary Tomorrow’s Hope (which also features Poindexter), this new film celebrates the desire to build a brighter outlook in an environment that appears challenging from all sides.


Kaotic’s list of performances includes President Obama’s inauguration, numerous NBA games, and countless Chicago-area events.


In its short life thus far, Kaotic Drumline was awarded “Best Documentary” at the Screen Power Film Festival; and was nominated for “Best Music” and “Best Editing.” The short has also appeared at the Chicago Indie Awards, Atlanta Shortsfest, Chi-Town Multicultural Film Festival, and was a semi-finalist at Sunday Shorts.
