Joseph Tawila was the lute player in a legendary Mizrahi band sadly torn apart by tragedy. Now, 20 years later, he is asked to reassemble the band for one final performance to honor the dying wish of a former band member. Joseph has many zany encounters as he travels throughout the land in search of accomplished musicians. This film, set in a mythical time and place in Israel, pays homage to the American Western, with exotic instruments taking the place of guns.

Q & A with Mark Kreditor,Music Educator follows the screening.
