Odyssey Film Club: WAJIB

February 27 @ 19:45 - 22:00

WAJIB

Screen25’s Odyssey Film Club presents: WAJIB at Harris Academy South Norwood (27 FEB 19:45).

Join us on the fourth Wednesday of every month for Odyssey Film Club, a special strand designed to shine a light on cinema from around the world.

This month we take a journey to Palestine for Annemarie Jacir’s multi-award winning road movie WAJIB.

Shadi returns home to Palestine to join his father in the centuries-old tradition of hand delivering wedding invitations for his sister’s wedding, a formality known as ‘Wajib’. What follows is an often funny and touching familial road movie, intertwined with the striking political tensions of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

A nuanced and cleverly portrayed story of family living under oppression

Join us after the film for a roundtable discussion.
