HARMONIA

Sun, Jan 29, 1:00 pm, $15

@ St. John’s High School,  Ryken Center, Shrewsbury

Director: Ori Sivan; Israel, 2016; 98 minutes;

Hebrew with English Subtitles

A contemporary adaptation of the biblical tale of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar, set in present-day Jerusalem. Abraham, conductor of the Jerusalem Philharmonic Orchestra and his wife Sarah, the orchestra’s harpist, cannot have children. Hagar, a young French horn player from East Jerusalem who joins the orchestra, offers to have a baby with Abraham for the couple. But the child, a wild and gifted musician, grows estranged from Sarah. When he discovers the true identity of his mother, his world–and that of those around him–falls apart. Harmonia presents a poignant metaphor to the struggle between the rival sibling religions that inhabit Jerusalem.  Nominated for 4 Ophir Awards, (Israeli Film Academy). Screened at Boston Jewish Film Festival, 2016
