Orchestra of Exiles

Musicians Fight Against Tyranny 12/14

"Orchestra of Exiles aspires to a level of primary research that other historical documentaries could take a page from." - The New York Times

A powerful, stirring documentary about one of the world's greatest orchestras, born from one of the world's worst tragedies. Orchestra of Exiles chronicles Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman's moving legacy and how he helped save Europe‚Äôs premier Jewish musicians from the tyranny of the Nazis during World War II. In the span of four years, Huberman embarked on an odyssey and went from renowned violinist to an unbreakable humanitarian by rescuing Jewish musicians from the Holocaust, creating an orchestra that would later become the celebrated Israel Philharmonic. Orchestra of Exiles is an amazing suspenseful piece of untold history, as one violinist and 70 Jewish musicians fight against Nazi obliteration with the only weapon they had: Music. Tickets to this screening are $11.50 for adults ($8 for members) and can be purchased in advance here.
