Let It Be Morning
Director: Eran Kolirin
2021, 101 minutes
Israel, France / Hebrew
This gently satirical tale centers on Sami, an executive who has traveled to his remote Arab hometown with his wife and son for his brother’s wedding. Barely able to conceal his condescension for his former friends, Sami is eager to return to his business (and mistress) in Jerusalem. But the Israeli military imposes a lockdown and has forbidden anyone from leaving. The situation exposes frictions and disparities within the town’s Arab population, and Sami is forced to reevaluate his seemingly comfortable place in society.
Israel’s entry to the Academy Awards for BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM and winner of seven Ophirs — including for BEST FILM and BEST DIRECTOR, Eran Kolirin (“The Band’s Visit”).
