On-Site Film Screening: “The Pianist From Ramallah”
May 21 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Join us on-site at the Museum a film screening presented in partnership with JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival:
“The Pianist from Ramallah” shares four years in the life of Muhammad “Misha” Alsheikh, a talented teenage pianist from Ramallah. The son of a Palestinian father and a Russian mother, it takes Muhammad 3 hours to get from his house to his piano lessons, but his dreams are bigger than borders. Between checkpoints, auditions, and his father’s will that he will become a doctor, Muhammad chases his aspirations of becoming a professional pianist – and of staying happy.
