Synopsis

A contemporary variation of the biblical story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar. Sarah, a harpist of the Jerusalem Philharmonic Orchestra is married to Abraham, its conductor. When Hagar, a young Palestinian horn player joins the orchestra, the thin balance in their family is shaken. 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.

  • Writer-director Ori Sivan has given us a retelling of Abraham and Sarah’s saga that is far from simplistic... I found myself holding my breath in anticipation of how a character would play a line of music.
