Tarab

The Journey of author Eli Amir and Filmmaker Boris Mafstir in search of identity and memory. Boris Maftsir sets out to trace the memories and personal identity of his friend Eli, and in the process encounters his own buried memories from the distant past in the Former Soviet Union. TARAB is a heightened spiritual and sensual state induced by Arabic music. TARAB is the music that ‘Fuad Elias’ heard as a young boy in Baghdad before becoming the renowned and respected Israeli author, Eli Amir. And TARAB is also the way in which Maftsir gains entry into the inner world of his eldest daughter Orit, one of the world’s most well known belly dancers.
