“Illuminates humanity’s darkest period from a fresh perspective while delivering the story of an astonishing hero.” Huffington Post

Orchestra of Exiles tells the dramatic story of how celebrated Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman rescued many of Europe’s premier Jewish musicians from Nazi Germany and created one of the world’s greatest orchestras: the Palestine Philharmonic, which would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. This extraordinary documentary mixes period photographs, newsreels and interviews with Itzhak Perlman, Zubin Mehta, Joshua Bell and others to show how Huberman saved close to 1,000 Jews, along with the musical heritage of Europe. (Josh Aronson, 2012, 85 min.)
