BJFF Closes In Grand Mizrahi Style

"The Ballad of the Weeping Spring"
“The Ballad of the Weeping Spring”

The second annual Boulder Jewish Film Festival Sponsored by the Millstone Evans Group of Raymond James closed out tonight with a fabulous film, “The Ballad of the Weeping Spring,” a musical homage to spaghetti westerns and samarai films alike as only an Israeli director can do it.  But the real star of the movie, and the evening, was the Mizrahi music soundtrack penned by Mark Eliyahu, who also plays a role in the film.  The Denver-based Middle Eastern band, Zuruna, provided a perfectly matched musical soundtrack for the closing party, which featured a buffet of Middle Eastern delicacies including falafel, babaganoush with pita, stuffed grape leaves, dates, olives, pistachios and baklava.

This second BJFF proved more successful than the first festival last year, and we are left looking forward to the third annual with much anticipation.
