South Bay Film Society

Screening over.

Reingold Audience Award, Festival of German Films Ludwigshafen
Audience Award, San Diego Film Festival

Loosely inspired by Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, when a world-famous conductor tries to create an Israeli-Palestinian orchestra, he is quickly drawn into a tempest of mistrust and conflict.

“Academy-Award nominated director Dror Zahavi helms this gripping drama as a constantly growing “crescendo,” raising the tension and conflicts until the last frame.   A remarkable theatrical movie and contribution to the worldwide efforts toward understanding, humanity and peace.” – Jewish Press

“There is a reason I love the New York Jewish Film Festival and that is simply because every year I get to discover at least one film that lives in my heart.   This year that film is CRESCENDO… the wonderful characters, genuine emotion, music and witty dialog carry it along.   I love this film.” – Steve Kopian Unseen Films

Language: English, German (English subtitles)
