On the edge of the Negev Desert lies Sderot, a city of factory workers and rock musicians, the children of refugees from North Africa and the Middle East who grew up in a transit camp. Despite being pummeled for years by homemade missiles known as Qassams, the people of Sderot persevere. In raucous Moroccan celebrations, they embrace newcomers. In quiet family dinners, they voice their dreams. And in underground bomb shelters, they create music, a unique Sderot sound that has transformed Israeli music by injecting Middle Eastern influences into traditional Western beats. Searching for a story about music, filmmaker Laura Bialis (“Vishniac,” BJF 2023) stumbles into a world she never imagined and encounters a creative community that captivates her, leading her to love and ultimately changing her life’s course.

This film is screening as part of the BJF Musical Roadtrip—A Cross-Cultural Musical Journey featuring a curated selection of four documentary films screening online from March 14-21.
