Miami Beach Cinematheque. From Jun 6th through Jun 9th, 2008.
The Miami Beach Cinematheque, located on Espanola Way in Miami Beach, presents the screening of the film The Band's Visit on Jun 6th through Jun 9th at 7:30 p.m. Once – not long ago – a small Egyptian police band arrived in Israel. They came to play at an initiation ceremony, but, due to bureaucracy, bad luck, or for whatever reason, they were left stranded at the airport. They tried to manage on their own, only to find themselves in a desolate, almost forgotten small Israeli town, somewhere in the heart of the desert. A lost band in a lost town. Not many remember this…It wasn't that important.
The Band's Visit is presented as part of the Miami Beach Cinematheque Premiere HD Digital series in collaboration with Emerging Cinemas South Beach Premiere. The film was awarded the Cannes Film Festival, UN Certain Regard Jury Prize, Israeli Film Academy Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, European Film Awards Discovery of the Year Eran Kolirin, Montreal Film Festival Best Feature Film and Tokyo Film Festival Grand Prize.
