When world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck accepts the task of creating an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra, he is quickly drawn into a tempest of unsolvable problems. Having grown up in a state of war, suppression and the constant risk of terror attacks, the young musicians on both sides are far from able to form a team. Lined up behind the two best violinists – the emancipated Palestinian Layla and the handsome Israeli Ron – they form two parties who deeply distrust each other, on and off-stage alike. Will Sporck succeed and make the young people forget their hatred, at least for the three weeks until the concert? In English and German with subtitles. (106 mins)

“Academy-Award nominated director Dror Zahavi helms this gripping drama as a constantly growing ‘crescendo,’ raising the tension and conflicts until the last frame. A remarkable theatrical movie and contribution to the worldwide efforts toward understanding, humanity and peace.” – Jewish Press

“… every year I get to discover at least one film that lives in my heart. This year that film is ‘Crescendo’… the wonderful characters, genuine emotion, music and witty dialog carry it along. I love this film.” – Steve Kopian, Unseen Films
