Description

LET IT BE MORNING

 

A Refocus Film Festival Selection

Adapted from the Hebrew language novel of the same name by Palestinian author Sayed Kashua, this gently comedic drama deals with charged issues of class and idenditity from the director of The Band's Visit. Sami lives in Jerusalem with his wife and kid. An invitation to his brother’s wedding brings him back to the Arabic village where he grew up. After the wedding, the village is put under lockdown by Israeli soldiers without explanation. Tensions are high in the town and chaos builds overnight amongst those stuck within the walls. Cut off from the outside world, Sami is forced to confront his family issues and personal struggles while assessing what is truly important.
