19th Annual NJJFF: Wajib

Wajib

Over the course of one day in Nazareth, Abu and his son Shadi (played by real-life father and son Mohammad and Saleh Bakri) hand-deliver invitations for the wedding of Abu’s daughter (including to two Jewish friends of Abu’s, whom Shadi suspects of being Israel spies). Through their bickering and reminiscing, they reveal layers of their troubled relationship and the generational gaps within Arab-Israeli society.

Winner—Best Muhr Fiction Feature—Best Actors Mohammad Bakri & Saleh Bakri, Dubai International Film Festival 2017
Audience Choice Award, Florence Middle East Festival 2018
Best Film, Casablanca Film Festival 2018
