中東可說是當今最動盪不安的地區之一。

1999年,以色列猶太裔指揮家巴倫波因、巴勒斯坦學者薩伊德和大提琴家馬友友等人,共同推動成立了一個以促進以巴和平為目標的交響樂團──「東西會議廳管絃樂團」。

 他們廣邀中東世界優秀的年輕樂手,藉由音樂上的討論與合作,弭平不同文化帶來的差異和偏見。

音樂雖然不能澆熄戰火,卻能為和平指引方向。

For many years, conductor and pianist Daniel BARENBOIM has worked towards reconciling Arabs and Israelis. Based on the notion that “music is the language of peace”, BARENBOIM and comparative literature professor Edward SAID brought together Arab and Israeli musicians, to perform in Weimar. Also participating in this bold experiment in 1999 was Yo-yo MA. The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, a name derived from a collection of poems by Goethe, today embraces Arab and Israeli musicians aged thirteen to twenty-six.

Director Paul SMACZNY has followed the orchestra since its inception. The film chronicles all five summer workshops in Weimar and Seville, BARENBOIM’s visit to Ramallah and Jerusalem in May 2004 – during which he received the prestigious Wolf Prize at the Knesset – as well as the sensational concert in Ramallah in August 2005.
