Sephardic Winter Film on April 4

Sephardic Winter Film Series



April 4, 2017.  The Ballad of the Weeping Spring.  Musical instruments take the place of guns and an Iranian symphony takes the place of a gun fight in this clever, emotional homage to The Magnificent Seven.  In this drama, a dying man’s last wish sends his oldest friend, Tawila, on a grand adventure to find the best symphony players around for a final performance of “The Ballad of Weeping Spring.”  But will a guilty secret undo all of Tawila’s hard work?  Winner of 4 Israeli Academy Awards, plus 5 nominations including Best Film, and winner Best Music at Jerusalem Film Festival.
