One of GPJFF’s most talked-about films from last year is back for one night only! Starring Peter Simonischek (Toni Erdmann) and an impressive supporting cast of non-actors, this affecting tale of forgiveness and reconciliation follows the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and its impressive group of young Israeli and Palestinian musicians. While eliminating discord and achieving harmony are undeniably noble undertakings, is music really powerful enough to pierce through years of caustic political discourse and the real-life suffering experienced by both sides of the conflict? Gorgeously filmed and filled with endlessly beautiful music, Crescendo will strike a chord with audiences, young and old alike.
