Play Still from the film Crescendo

Available Friday, May 8 via Virtual Screening Room

Loosely inspired by Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, Academy-Award nominated director Dror Zahavi’s (Alexander Penn, Everything For My Father) latest follows world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck (Toni Erdmann‘s Peter Simonischek) as he accepts the job to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra. The two factions fall in line behind two star violinists – the emancipated Palestinian Layla and the handsome Israeli Ron – sparring both on and off-stage, while the conductor presses the young people to put aside their hatred… at least for the three weeks leading up to the climactic concert.
