The Band’s visit is a film about an Egyptian band which came to Israel to play at the opening of an Arab Cultural Center and by mistake arrives at an isolated village where as one of the villagers informs them, “there is no Arab culture, no Israeli culture, no culture at all”.
The film was awarded the official Cannes Festival selection as well as 8 Israeli academy awards. It is 90 minutes with English subtitles.
Next semester the Israel and Jewish Studies will present the Israeli Film Festival.
