Harmonia

Harmonia

Filmmaker Ori Sivan (co-creator of Israel's "In Treatment") presents a contemporary variation of the biblical story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar. Sarah, a harpist of the Jerusalem Philharmonic Orchestra is married to Abraham, its conductor. When Hagar, a young Palestinian horn player joins the orchestra, the thin balance in their family is shaken. HARMONIA uncovers the metaphoric emotional roots of the ancient conflict between the two peoples living in Jerusalem, now seeking harmony through a dramatic encounter between Western and Eastern music.

Winner of Two Awards (Best Cinematography, The Lia Van Leer Award) | Jerusalem Film Festival
