Wajib - Sunday 25th November 5pm

In this Sunday's film Director Annemarie Jacir uses a simple road trip around Nazareth to explore the different ‘truths’ of life as seen by Palestinians in Israel. Father and son (as are the actors), are hand delivering invites to a wedding;  Abu Shadi - who has lived here all his life - and Shadi -  who now lives in Italy - argue about their different views of how to survive, about what is important; about pragmatism and idealism.

"It's easy to wear a rose coloured pair of designer Italian glasses when you are observing from a distance, whereas Shadi's father faces the compromises needed to rub along successfully in his homeland" - Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film.
