The Wonderful Kingdom of Papa Alaev (2016)

Directed by: Tal Barda & Noam Pinchas
Duration: 74′
Screening time: Saturday, 5th May, 14:30

The Alaev Family, a multi-generational family music band, has been performing for more than 50 years, blending Eastern European, Jewish and Roma influences in unforgettable performances. After the fall of the Soviet Union, their charismatic dictator, Papa Allo, moved his clan from their native Tajikistan to Israel, where he has continued to exert his will. Only his equally strong-willed daughter, Ada, has dared to resist until now. As Papa nears 80, the patriarch’s power begins to slip further and the family finds itself on a bumpy road from monarchy to democracy.
