Harmonia

Dir. Ori Sivan
(98 min, Israel, 2016)
Hebrew with English subtitles
Narrative
DC Premiere

A contemporary adaptation of the biblical tale of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar, set in the world of the Jerusalem Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor Abraham, and his wife Sarah, the orchestra’s harpist, cannot have children. Hagar, a beautiful, young horn player from East Jerusalem, offers to have a baby with Abraham for the couple, but eventually the child grows estranged from Sarah.

Through this ancient story, Harmonia presents a poignant metaphor to the modern day challenges facing Israel’s sibling religions.

Nominated for 4 Ophir (Israeli Academy) Awards.
