Directed by Simonka de Jong, the documentary A Family Quartet is “an intimate portrait of a family that tries to function normally under special circumstances” (de Volkskrant).
De Jong followed Noa and her family for three years, leading up to Noa’s debut album with Warner Classics and her international breakthrough. From an early age, Noa and her sister Avigal shared a love for music. They were stimulated by their parents, both musicians, to always get the best out of themselves. A Family Quartet follows family life at home as Noa’s career begins to take flight. In intimate observations we experience the emotional links between family members, and how love, expectations and ambition all come together.
