One of CAARI’s favorite speakers over the years is documentary filmmaker, Yael Katzir. This year she presented a new film, “Violins at Wartime” which is against the backdrop of the Second Lebanon War in the summer of 2006. The film portrays the perseverance of a remarkable group of musicians who continue teaching and practicing violin in spite of the war. The music is beautiful and we highly recommend viewing the film as well as others by Yael. it. You can see the trailer on youtube! Yael discussed why she made the film and her personal feelings about the film. It was a very special evening for the CAARI group.
