Maine Jewish Film Festival: Wajib

Maine Jewish Film Festival: Wajib


Tuesday, March 12 at 7:00 p.m.


Over one winter’s day in Nazareth, father Abu and son Shadi (real-life father and son actors Mohammed and Saleh Bakri) visit friends and family to deliver invitations for the wedding of Abu’s daughter. Along the way, they reminisce, bicker and laugh together, revealing tensions both political and familial. A richly cinematic sense of place, complex characters and a fine script make this film both thought-provoking and entertaining. In Arabic with English subtitles. 96 min. Note that Tuesday’s discount prices do not apply.

Screened as part of the 22nd Annual Maine Jewish Film Festival!

This program is made possible by the Bernard Osher Foundation, the Lunder Foundation, and the Sam L. Cohen Foundation.
