Award-winning Israeli film titled "The Band's Visit"

Members of an Egyptian ceremonial police force band head to Israel to play at the inaugural ceremony of an Arab arts center only to end up lost in the wrong town. A gentle comedy-drama about little gestures of hospitality and understanding amidst hostility, isolation, mistrust and misunderstanding. It is “not so much a story about Jews and Arabs finding a way to get along as it is a nonpolitical story about people discovering the humanity in others, in all their scared, awkward beauty.”
