The festivities will begin on opening night with the premiere screening of Yossi Banai – Farewell Album (Israel, 2013, 63 minutes, Hebrew with English translation). Directed by Miki Steiner, the film is a farewell portrait of Yossi Banai through his songs. In the final months of .Banai began working on a new album. He was looking for new composers to create the music for his texts. Soon after, he learned that he was ill, but the young musicians working with him on the album had no hint that these would be their last meetings with Banai, and  that this album would be his farewell. After his death in May 2006, Helicon initiated the project of completing the album, recording with the musicians who worked with Yossi Banai on the songs: Shlomi Shaban, Ehud Banai, Yuval Banai, Arkadi Duchin, Micha Shitrit, Corinne Alal, Maor Cohen, Idan Raichel, Peter Roth and more…
