The Ballad of the Weeping Spring
(Balada le'aviv ha'bohe)

  •   Benny Toraty
  •   Israel


In this heartfelt road movie, Amram journeys to reunite his dying father’s bandmates from the legendary Turquoise Ensemble to fulfill his final wish. But can the band overcome guilt and grievances, personal quirks and obligations, and unexpected hijinks on the way to their farewell concert more than 20 years after their tragic breakup? Inspired by the classic Western The Magnificent Seven, with a comedic touch and a rousing soundtrack, this drama is a beautiful tribute to music and friendship. Hebrew with subtitles.


Co-presented by the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest
