Nominated for four Israeli Academy Awards and a selection of the 2017 Washington Jewish Film Festival, HARMONIA is a modern adaptation of the mythological triangle between the childless Abraham and Sarah and young Hagar, set in the Jerusalem Philharmonic. Conductor Abraham, and his wife Sarah, the orchestra’s harpist, cannot have children. When Hagar, a young horn player from East Jerusalem, joins the western side orchestra, she bonds with Sarah and a unique friendship evolves between the two women. Hagar, feeling Sarah’s pain from not having children, offers to have a baby for her from Abraham, but as the child grows older and becomes a renowned pianist in his own right, an emotional clash develops between the two women. HARMONIA uncovers the metaphoric emotional roots of the ancient conflict between the two peoples living in Jerusalem, now seeking harmony through a dramatic encounter between Western and Eastern music.
