Free Screening Of ‘Knowedge Is The Beginning’

Daniel Barenboim established the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra with the late Palestinian writer Edward Said in order to bring together young musicians from across the political divide in the Middle East. Their hope was that music would heal and help to bring understanding and tolerance of different beliefs and cultures.

The award-winning documentary describing this project from its beginning in 1999, “Knowledge is the Beginning” was produced and directed by Paul Smaczny. The triumphal culmination of this project is illustrated in "The Ramallah Concert" which is a live recording at the Place of Culture in Ramallah, August 21, 2005. This second film will be shown on Sunday, April 9th. Same time and place.

Both events are sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace, San Diego Chapter.
