Twenty years after disappearing, a legendary lute player is
coaxed out of self-imposed exile for a deathbed concert for a former band-mate. This stylized, moody and surprising journey is part spaghetti western, part SEVEN SAMURAI, with musical instruments instead of weapons.


Under The Same Sun
Tuesday, July 29 Director: Sameh Zoabi
Awards: Best Feature Narrative . Peace on Earth Film Festival

A joint venture between an Israeli and a Palestinian? Impossible! That's what the friends and families of Shaul, an Israeli businessman and Nizar, his Palestinian partner, think.

in the Middle East come truethanks to a Facebook campaign.

Kidon
Thursday, July 31 Director: Emmanuel Naccache

Awards: Nominated for Best Actress, Best Sound, Israeli Film Academy, 2013

This peppy spy comedy is a tongue-in-cheek re-imagining of the circumstances surrounding the intriguing true story in 2010, when a Hamas operative, was assassinated in his Dubai hotel room. Though local police accuse the Mossad, and alleged security footage makes worldwide news,
the Mossad have never heard of these agents or this mission. What unfolds is a thrilling scramble to uncover the identity of the assassins. Featuring supermodel Bar Rafaeli.
