Eran Korilin's 2007 comedy-drama, the story upon which the 2018 Tony-award-winning musical is based, was an international co-production among Isreal, France, and the United States. It follows a band comprised of members of the Egyptian police force who arrive by mistake in a small town in Isreal's Negev Desert. They were booked to play at the inaugural ceremony of an Arab arts center, but instead find themselves lost in the wrong town. Following the screening, Suheir Daoud, professor in the CCU Department of Politics will lead a discussion on the cultural and political context of the film.
