Screening of Michel Khleifi’s film “Wedding in Galilee”
June 5, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Art of Cinema – screening of Michel Khleifi’s film “Wedding in Galilee”, organized by the Audiovisual Archives of Monaco on Tuesday, June 5, at 8:30 pm in Théâtre des Variétés.
A Palestinian seeks Israeli permission to waive curfew to give his son a fine wedding. The military governor’s condition is that he and his officers attend. The groom berates his father for agreeing. Women ritually prepare the bride; men prepare the groom. Guests gather. The Arab youths plot violence. One Israeli officer swoons in the heat and Arab women take her into the cool house. A thoroughbred gets loose and runs to a mined field; soldiers and Arabs must cooperate to rescue it. As darkness falls, tensions between army and villagers rise, and the groom’s wedding-night anger and impotence threaten family dignity and honor. Can cool heads prevail?
