Film: The Broken Sound
Spearheaded by Alan Bern of the band Brave Old World, the Other Europeans was a collaborative effort of fourteen lăutari (professional Roma musicians) and klezmer musicians from eight countries who came together to learn about and perform the interconnected musical traditions of the Jewish and Roma communities of Bessarabia. This documentary film, shot over two years in Moldova, Hungary, Israel, Germany, and the United States, follows the musicians as they explore Roma and Jewish musical traditions, develop relationships across national and cultural boundaries, and perform extraordinary music.
2012, 125 minutes, in English, German, Yiddish, and Romanian with English subtitles. The film will be shown in video projection.
