Maine Jewish Film Festival: Wajib

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

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

Admission: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students

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