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.


Live conversation with Director Yuval Hameiri and film subject Tom Cohen, moderated by BJF Artistic Director Lisa Gossels, included with purchase of ticket and pass.
