The origin of the story begins in 2007, when Mr. Wolf took his wife, who was born in Israel, to the Other Israel Film Festival at J.C.C. Manhattan on the Upper West Side. There was a new Israeli film playing that they wanted to see — “The Band’s Visit,” a fictional story about an Egyptian police orchestra that gets stranded for a night in an Israeli desert town.
