Next date for your diary: Monday 12th June “The Survivor”.

On an ordinary day, the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra arrives in Israel from Egypt for a cultural event, only find there is no delegation to meet them, nor any arrangements to get to their destination of Petah Tikva. When they find their own ride, they arrive instead at the remote  village of Beit Hatikva. Stuck there until the next morning’s bus, the band, led by the repressed Tawfiq Zacharaya, gets help from the worldly Dina, who offers to put them up for the night. As the band settles in as best it can, each of the members attempts to get along with the natives in their own way. What follows is a special night of quiet happenings and confessions as the band makes its own impact on the town and the town on them.

This 2008, Award-Winning Israeli Movie, is warm and funny, dealing with, as it does, relationships, cultural and personal. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and allows us, the audience to settle down, and go with the flow, over a night of discovery.
