LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
#AFF2017 is officially over, but we are screening films all year long! AFMI co-hosts Wajib‘s U.S. premiere and Beauty and the Dogs at AFI FEST.
This month we are co hosting WAJIB and BEAUTY AND THE DOGS at AFI FEST in Los Angeles. Join us – tickets are free, but you must reserve them here.

 

WAJIB (Annemarie Jacir) is the Palestinian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards and it has played to rave reviews and sold out shows abroad.
Abu Shadi, 65, is a divorced father and a school teacher living in Nazareth. After his daughter’s wedding in one month he will be living alone. Shadi, his architect son, arrives from Rome after years abroad to help his father in hand delivering the wedding invitations to each guest as per local Palestinian custom. As the estranged pair spend the day together, the tense details of their relationship come to a head challenging their fragile and very different lives.
