ISR/FRA | 2016 | dir. Elite Zexer, with Lamis Ammar, Ruba Blal-Asfour, Haitham Omari, Khadija Alakel, Jalal Masarwa

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Elite Zexer’s debut feature is a stunning film about Israel’s Bedouin community. Jalila has the awkward task of organising the celebration of her husband’s marriage to a second, much younger woman. On the wedding day, she discovers that her daughter is having a secret love affair with a boy from her school.  Mother and daughter struggle to accommodate their anger and frustration.
