Film screening: The Ballad of the Weeping Spring

Director: Benny Toraty • Israel • 2012 • Drama • 106 min. • Hebrew (with English subtitles) 

Borrowing from diverse genres, including samurai theater, spaghetti westerns, and South American mysticism, this film incorporates remarkable sets, locations, costumes, and a haunting soundtrack to follow the adventures of a son who pledges to reunite his father’s legendary band to play one last concert before one of the band members dies. Star performances from some of Israel’s best-known actors, including Uri Gavriel, Dudu Tassa, Nir Levy, and Adar Gold make this extraordinary tale of love, tragedy, passion, and courage a definite must-see.
