BLUE SKY FESTIVAL - Tuesday 11 to Sunday 16 June 2019

A traditional family wedding in Palestine puts strain on the relationship between an old school father and his cosmopolitan expat son in this wry family drama from Annemarie Jacir (The Salt of the Sea, When I Saw You).

After years in Italy, architect Shadi (Saleh Bakri) returns to his native Nazareth to help his estranged father (Mohammad Bakri, Saleh's real-life father) hand-deliver his sister's wedding invitation in accordance with tradition. Travelling around the city together by car, often stuck in traffic, personal, generational and political tensions all rear their heads - can they bridge the gap between their radically different lives?

A charming, poignant and entertaining tale that dances along the easily blurred line between love and duty - and a moving exploration of what it means to be a Palestinian abroad vs a Palestinian at home.
