Crossing documentary and fiction, Manna explores the different musical traditions of the communities that live in and around Jerusalem with Jewish-German specialist Robert Lachman and his work in Palestine as a kick-off point.

Competition / International Official Competition
Premier americana

Back in the ‘30s, musicologist Robert Lachmann vindicated through his radio show the fact that the borders between Arab and Jewish music are artificial. Eight decades later, Jumana Manna retrieves some of the field recordings Lachmann used in his show, presenting them to musicians from different tribes and religions: Kurdish, Moroccans, Samaritans, and Bedouins, who reinterpret the pieces and also add their own testimonies. The result is a moving and vital reflection on the notion of home, its loss, and also its use as a refuge against reality. There’s also a kind of return to a paradise-like state, a historical moment that transcends the words of statesmen, in the melisma of a song that was passed on through generations. FG
