A documentary film about violinist Bronislaw Huberman has been released in the US. Orchestra of Exiles explores how the Polish-born violinist brought persecuted Jewish musicians to Palestine and in 1936 formed the Palestine Symphony Orchestra, which later became the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

The 85-minute film, directed by Josh Aronson, includes archive footage and photos, historical reenactments, and interviews with Pinchas Zukerman, Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell and others. The film is playing at film festivals across the US over the next three months.
