    “A comedy about dance and growing older. Thirty five years ago, Israel’s mythological folk dance troupe “Hora ’79″ ceased its activity following a traumatic event, and the dancers went their separate ways. Now, after several decades, the Carmiel Dance Festival initiates a one-time event – a tribute to the legendary dance troupe. Upon receiving this surprising invitation, the troupe decides to reunite.”

    “HORA 79″— Aging and Israeli Dance
    by Amos Lassen
    ““Hora 79” is a comedy about dance and aging. The troupe had once represented Israel everywhere in the world and that is enough to get the dancers to come together one more time. ”
