About the Film

THE BAND’S VISIT | ביקור התזמורת

Strangers in a strange land, eight Egyptian members of the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra, arrive by mistake in a small town in Israel’s Negev Desert. With no means to leave or any hotels to stay at, they’re forced to seek refuge at a restaurant owned by Dina (Ronit Elkabetz) who comes to their rescue—overcoming ethnic barriers to offer food, lodging, and much-needed sympathy to the wandering band.
