After the film, associate director Dori A. Robinson and dramaturg Vahdat Yeganeh from The Huntington and SpeakEasy Stage’s production of the musical will lead a post-screening discussion.

This heartwarming and poignant winner of the Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard prize is the mesmerizing and witty story of strangers in a strange land. A fading Egyptian police band arrives in Israel to play at the Arab Cultural Center. When they take the wrong bus, the band members find themselves in a desolate Israeli village. With no other option than to spend the night with the local townspeople, the two distinctly different cultures realize the universal bonds of love, music, and life. Set against a breathtaking desert landscape, this cross-cultural comedy proves that getting lost is sometimes the best way to find yourself.

The Band's Visit plays at The Huntington from November 10–December 17, 2023.
