Israel Media Series: The Band’s Visit

The Band’s Visit will be the opening film of the tenth season of Beth El’s Israel Media Series.

The plot centers on a visiting Egyptian music ensemble that is mistakenly transported to an isolated Israeli desert town and follows the intriguing issues of hospitality and cultural exchange that arise. The film was an international co-production between Israel, France, and the United States and contains more than 50% English dialogue and additional English subtitles. The movie will start 45 minutes later than our customary start because Shabbat ends later in September. Admission is $5.00, and refreshments will be served.
