Ballad of the Weeping Spring at the Mandel JCC Cleveland Jewish FilmFest
BALLAD OF THE WEEPING SPRING Monday, October 7, 7:30 PM, Cedar Lee Theatre
Director: Benny Torati Israel, Hebrew, 2012, 105 minutes
With an interesting soundtrack serving as the film's backbone, the story centers on the brooding Josef Tawila, once the leader of a Mizrahi band (players of a unique musical form combining Middle Eastern and North African influences), who lives a hermit- like existence in the wake of a terrible accident. In a series of quirky vignettes across stunning exotic locations, Tawila brings together his old musician buddies to grant the last wishes of a dying friend, while healing his own soul.
