Wedding in Galilee

One of the first films made in Israel to feature an Arab point of view, "Wedding in Galilee" is a richly-detailed allegory of marriage, tradition, and national identity. The elder of a Palestinian village under Israeli military rule wants permission to hold a traditional wedding for his son that will go past the imposed curfew. The Army commander agrees on the condition that he and his officers be invited as guests of honor at the ceremony. Director Michel Khleifi's extraordinary first feature is an erotic and often compelling meditation on two conflicting cultures who attempt to put aside their differences for one long day of celebration. Winner of International Critics Award, Cannes Film Festival.
