HIGHLAND PALESTINE THIRD FILM FESTIVAL 2018

Feature film written and directed by Annemarie Jacir (2017 96 min).

In Arabic with English subtitles.

Annemarie Jacir’s previous feature length films, The Salt of the Sea (2007) and When I Saw You (2012) have become significant landmarks in contemporary Palestinian film making. Her latest Wajib, which means Duty, looks set to seal her reputation as the pre-eminent film writer/director in Palestine.

Bringing together father and son actors, Mohammad and Saleh Bakri, to play father and son int he film, creates a unique dynamic. The storyline revolves around a father and his estranged son who come together to deliver his daughter's wedding invitations personally to each guest. Mohammad Bakri, perhaps one of the best known international Palestinian actor, (he also had a role in the big budget 2017 US thriller American Assassin) has had a long career as a stage and film actor as well as writer and director. His son Saleh has become an equally distinguished stage and film actor, who appears in both of Jacir’s previous features. Incidentally Saleh’s brother Ziad appears in Personal Affairs.
