About the film
This heartwarming and poignant winner of the Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard prize and Israel’s official entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film is the mesmerizing and witty story of strangers in a strange land. A fading Egyptian police band arrives in Israel to play at the Arab Cultural Center. When they take the wrong bus, the band members find themselves in a desolate Israeli village. With no other option than to spend the night with the local townspeople, the two distinctly different cultures realize the universal bonds of love, music, and life. Set against a breathtaking desert landscape and featuring Israeli superstars Sasson Gabay (also at the Festival with Karaoke) and the late Ronit Elkabetz, this cross-cultural comedy proves that getting lost is sometimes the best way to find yourself.
