Live Discussion of the film, Crescendo
COVID-19 shut down our film programs for the spring, but we are developing new opportunities to view films together. CRESCENDO is a newly released movie about a world-famous conductor attempting to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra. He is quickly drawn into a tempest. The young musicians, having grown up in a state of war, suppression or constant risk of terrorist attacks, are far from able to form a team, instead forming two parties who deeply mistrust each other, on and off-stage alike.
Havre de Grace Arts Collective in collaboration with Temple Adas Shalom bring you this new, first-run film which you can screen at home. CRESCENDO is now playing and tickets are on sale for a rental that can be viewed any time ($12): https://vimeo.com/ondemand/crescendohdg. You are invited to participate in a live discussion of the film on Tuesday, May 26 at 7 pm. To register for the live Zoom, go to https://tinyurl.com/ycu27247
