Rita’s music succeeds where diplomacy can’t – getting Israel and Iran to agree
- The Guardian

An intimate portrait of Israel’s most successful contemporary diva, Iranianborn superstar Rita Jahan Foruz, as she records and performs her new collection of classic Persian songs.

At the age of eight, in 1970, Rita’s family emigrated to Israel. She began singing professionally as a band member while in the Israeli Army and rose to stardom quickly. Rita shows the power of music to celebrate identity and cross cultural and political boundaries. In proudly representing both Israeli and Persian culture, we follow this inspirational woman as she takes her most personal and treasured songs all the way to the United Nations.
