The 2013 Jewish Film Festival of Dallas will present Ballad of the Weeping Spring, which follows Joseph Tawila, who was the lute player in a legendary Mizrahi band sadly torn apart by tragedy. Now, 20 years later, he is asked to reassemble the band for one final performance to honor the dying wish of a former band member. Joseph has many zany encounters as he travels throughout the land in search of accomplished musicians. This film, set in a mythical time and place in Israel, pays homage to the American Western, with exotic instruments taking the place of guns.

A Q & A with music educator Mark Kreditor will follow the screening.
