THE BAND'S VISIT (2007)
Rated PG-13 
87 Min

A police ceremonial band from Egypt, in Israel for a cultural exchange, ends up in a desert town far from anywhere and is taken on mercy by the bored, cynical residents. Overcoming ethnic barriers, the Egyptians find diversion and companionship with the Israelis through a pervading undercurrent of shared melancholy. A long night's journey marked with comedy, human nature, and bittersweet reality. 

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times selected The Band's Visit as one of the 20 best films of 2008.
