Listening to the World

Culminating with a performance in the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence, RI, the filmmakers provide a visually poetic glimpse of the East-West Divan Orchestra. Supported with interviews of Daniel Barenboim and Miriam Said, the film presents this project of bringing together young musicians from Israel and various countries of the Middle East with the aim of combining musical study and development with the sharing of knowledge and comprehension between people from cultures that traditionally have been rivals.
