Maine Jewish Film Festival: Wajib

March 12, 2019, 7:00 PM

$8 – $10

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.

Part of the Maine Jewish Film Festival.
