Harmonia (Israel, 2016, drama, 98 minutes)
Hebrew with English subtitles • Director: Ori Sivan
A modern adaptation of the biblical story of Sarah, Abraham, and Hagar, Harmonia is set against the musical backdrop of an orchestra in Jerusalem. Sarah, the orchestra’s harpist, and her husband, Abraham, the conductor, have no children, and their life revolves around their music. When Hagar, a beautiful young horn player from East Jerusalem, joins the orchestra, she bonds with Sarah and a unique friendship evolves. Music plays a dramatic role in this family drama.
