American Odyssey is a look at Orff-Schulwerk in America in 1979. Filmed in 17 schools in
7 states, it documents the creative process in music, movement, dance, theater, and the
spoken word, involving students and teachers from kindergarten through community chorus
and orchestra. Running throughout are the poem "Sky Dwellers" by Marcia Lunz and the
poetic camerawork of Abbott Meader and Huey and the sound recordings of Bruce Williams.
