(Urs al-jalil)

Director: Michel Khleifi

Israel, France, Belgium, 1987

Run Time: 100 minutes, Certificate: -,

Synopsis:

A timely showing of Palestinian Michael Khleifi's hugely underrated Elm about an arabic wedding which is only allowed by the local Israeli governor if he is invited! Shot in Galilee with locals from the occupied West Bank, a rare insight is given of life there, only usually glimpsed in news bulletins, in a film that is "intelligent, surprisingly sensuous and a moving plea for liberty and understanding" (Time Out)
