Join us virtually for a live conversation with director Yuval Hameiri and film subject Tom Cohen, moderated by Boston Jewish Film’s artistic director Lisa Gossels.

Yuval Hameiri is a multidisciplinary artist working in film, theater and performance. His works combine object theater with documentary cinema, stage with screen, humor with pain. His art seeks after the poetics of everyday life and the relationship between matter and meaning. Hameiri studied film at Tel Aviv University, the Sam Spiegel School of Film in Jerusalem and in the Art Midrasha in Beit Berel.

Tom Cohen is internationally recognized for fusing musical styles from East and West to create Levant music, a new musical language. Classically trained and steeped in the music of North Africa and Arab countries, Cohen combines Western musicians and Arabic instrument virtuosi to bring Levant music to orchestras and ensembles as diverse as The Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra and the orchestras he’s founded in Israel, Morocco, Belgium and Canada. As the founder, arranger, chief conductor and musical director of The Jerusalem Orchestra East & West, he has presented the orchestra not only in its home city of Jerusalem but also across the Middle East.

About the film:

Broken strings, fractured echo chambers, rusting valves. One brilliant conductor, three gifted composers and 100 musicians from different backgrounds meet for four days of rehearsals to pull off a concert unlike any other: a concert played in Jerusalem on broken instruments. With professional and amateur musicians, young and old, this orchestra comes together in an attempt to create harmony in a discordant city.

This live event is included with your festival pass or ticket to the “That Orchestra With the Broken Instruments” film screening.
