Wedding in Galilee is the first major Palestinian fiction film to be made by an “insider,” an Israeli Palestinian. It was awarded the International Critics Prize at Cannes in 1987.
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. Filmmaker 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.
