Film Screening: The Orchestra with the Broken Instruments
THIS Thursday, July 7, 7:30 pm
DocAviv International Film Festival, Israel, 2021
Unstrung ouds, valveless trumpets, pianos with sticky keys. One brilliant conductor, three gifted composers, and 100 musicians meet for four days of rehearsals. They speak different languages – Jewish, Muslim and Christian. Their instruments are broken. An orchestra of professional and amateur musicians, young and old, prepare, against all odds, for a one-time-only concert in Jerusalem. A poetic, engaging take on broken and whole presents Jerusalem characters and an attempt to create harmony in a discordant city.
“The final performance is both wry and stirring, making this one of the finest music documentaries of the past year” – Boston Globe
No Registration is required. $8 per person (popcorn included!).
