International Film Series brings ‘Band’s Visit’

LACONIA — The Laconia Human Relations Committee in cooperation with the Laconia Public Library shows the film The Band's Visit, Monday, December 1 at 6:45 p.m.
The Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra, consisting of eight men, arrives in Israel from Egypt. They wear sky-blue uniforms with gold braid on the shoulders, dismount from a bus in the middle of nowhere and stand uncertainly on the sidewalk. They have been booked by an Arab Cultural Center and their leader, a severe man with a perpetually dour expression, crosses the street and asks the woman for directions to the Arab Cultural Center. She looks at him as if he stepped off a flying saucer.
Through a miscommunication the band takes a bus to Bet Hatikva, a fictional town in the middle of the Negev Desert. There is no transportation out of the city that day, and there are no hotels for them to spend the night in. The band members dine at a small restaurant where the owner, Dina invites them to stay the night at her apartment, at her friends' apartment, and in the restaurant. That night challenges all of the characters.
The Band's Visit is both a clever, subtle slice-of-life comedy, and poignant cross-cultural exploration with an Egyptian band and an Israeli desert commune. According to Roger Ebert, this 2007 film provides an interlude of life between Arabs and Israelis as ordinary people with ordinary hopes, lives, and disappointments.
The Laconia International Film Series is open free to everyone. Brief informal discussion follows the film. Light snacks are provided. Feel free to bring a cushion for comfort in viewing the movie.
