The Wonderful Kingdom of Papa Alaev

The Wonderful Kingdom of Papa Alaev

A modern-day Shakespearean tale about a legendary Tajik-Israeli musical family controlled by the charismatic patriarch Papa Alaev. Only his equally strong-willed daughter, Ada, dares to resist his will. As Papa nears 80 and generations clash over new musical directions, the family show must go on. But who will lead the band?

"Juicy without being disrespectful, the backstage dramas ultimately secondary to the thrill of the music itself." - Dennis Harvey, Variety

Directed by Tal Barda and Noam Pinchas
