A huge box-office hit in Israel, this laugh-out-loud army-buddy movie combines absurd comedy, romance and music to create a film as hot as the Negev.
“An honest, intelligent, and hilarious perspective on modern relationships” - Sundance Institute
Anna and Ben are a pair of 30-something Jewish artists who fight constantly. It doesn’t help that they’ve each come to a standstill in their careers, or that, together, they’ve suffered a heartbreak neither wants to face. But one day they come up with a brilliant idea they actually agree on: why not start a band and use their arguments as songwriting inspiration? Almost as soon as they dig out their old electric guitars from the garage, their musical partnership starts to gel, but it soon becomes apparent that this is only a temporary distraction from their real problems.
Debut feature director Zoe Lister-Jones, who also writes and stars in Band Aid, offers a funny, unexpected, and poignant perspective on modern relationships. Also starring Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) and Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Band Aid premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
