Crew
Directed by Michel Khleifi


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: International Critics Award, Cannes Film Festival, 1987
Grand Prize, San Sebastian Film Festival, 1987
