Congregation Ahavath Achim, in cooperation with the Sephardic Cultural Center of Oregon, will present the 10th Annual Sephardic Winter Film Series, a compilation of film screenings with Sephardic content, to be shown on the first Tuesday of each month, beginning November 2016 through April 2017.  Film screenings are FREE to the public, (a modest voluntary donation is suggested but not required).  After each film is screened, a discussion period will follow with a prominent local personality to lead the discussion.  A Sephardic dessert and tea will be provided during the discussion period.

Final film:

April 4, 2017

The Ballad of the Weeping Spring.  Musical instruments take the place of guns and an Iranian symphony takes the place of a gun fight in this clever, emotional homage to The Magnificent Seven.  In this drama, a dying man’s last wish sends his oldest friend, Tawila, on a grand adventure to find the best symphony players around for a final performance of “The Ballad of Weeping Spring.”  But will a guilty secret undo all of Tawila’s hard work?  Winner of 4 Israeli Academy Awards, plus 5 nominations including Best Film, and winner Best Music at Jerusalem Film Festival.

Hebrew with subtitles, 105 minutes, 2012, Film by Benny Toraty, Discussion speaker: Charles Levy
