Foreign Film & Discussion Series

The Band’s Visit

TheBandsVisitsm2Join Drexel Professor Ramesh Kajaria to watch and discuss this award-winning film from Israel on Sunday, June 21st at 2 pm. (2007) In Hebrew w/English subtitles. Rated PG-13.  No registration required.

This heartwarming and poignant winner of the Cannes Film Festival Un   Certain Regard prize is the mesmerizing and witty story of strangers in a strange land. A fading Egyptian police band arrives in Israel to play at the Arab Cultural Center. When they take the wrong bus, the band members find themselves in a desolate Israeli village. With no other option than to spend the night with the local townspeople, the two distinctly different cultures realize the universal bonds of love, music and life. Set against a breathtaking desert landscape, this cross-cultural comedy proves that getting lost is sometimes the best way to find yourself.

    I am so glad to hear that Ramesh Kajaria is still presenting movies at Evesham! That was a wonderful program when I was working there. Please say hello to him for me. And keep posting his films here. I will check them out — when he’s done with his presentation, of course!

      Thanks for the kind words, Lisa! Mr. Kajaria was also glad to hear them when we passed them on to him. Attendance for his program has been growing steadily since the Ritz Filmbill started listing us. We’ll keep posting them on the blog!
