Mandel JCC Cleveland Jewish FilmFest
Israel | 2016 | Ori Sivan
In his award-winning and musically-enchanting drama, filmmaker Ori Sivan (In Treatment) transposes the foundational Biblical story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar to modern-day Israel. Hagar is a Palestinian horn player who is accepted into Jerusalem’s Philharmonic Orchestra, led by maestro Abraham, whose wife (Sarah) is principal harpist. Each woman gives a son to Abraham, and both boys grow up to become virtuosos. But the family is pulled apart, and the best hope for reunification seems to be the music they share. Nominated for five Israeli Academy Awards. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 98 min.
