Harmonia Film Night – 18th March

 

HARMONIA

DIRECTED BY ORI SIVAN (2016)

 

Harmonia is a modern adaptation of the mythological triangle between the childless Abraham and Sarah and young Hagar.

Sarah is the harpist of the Jerusalem Philharmonic; Abraham is its almighty conductor. When Hagar, a young horn player from East Jerusalem joins the Western Side Orchestra, she bonds with Sarah and a unique friendship evolves between the two women.

Hagar, feeling Sarah’s pain from not having children, offers to have a baby for her from Abraham, shaking the thin balance in the family. The biblical adaptation later develops to an emotional clash between the born son Ben a 12 year old phenomenal pianist and his two mothers.

Harmonia uncovers the metaphoric emotional roots of the ancient conflict between the two peoples living in Jerusalem, now seeking harmony through a dramatic encounter between Western and Eastern music.
