Violins in Wartime is a documentary feature that was shot during the 2nd Lebanon War in Israel. It follows a group of internationally-acclaimed conductors who travelled to Israel for a month-long workshop for young classical musicians from around the world. It’s an annual program that takes place in Keshet Eilon, a kibbutz on the border of Lebanon. The sound of violin concertos was suddenly muffled by the sounds of Kassam Missiles when the 2nd Lebanon war broke out in the midst of the program…

A story of music, classical art and war.
