Canada/France, 2006, 85 min, documentary
Director: Florence Strauss

"The world is divided in half — east and west — the halves weep. They long for each other."

Filmmaker Florence Strauss sets off in search of the roots of Arab classical music. Her journey takes her from Paris to Cairo, Aleppo, Damascus, Beirut and Tel Aviv. Along the way she discovers the remarkable story of her own Middle Eastern heritage.

Featuring many of the finest musicians of the Arab world, this is a celebration of the power to music to transcend time, language and cultural differences.
