The Green Bay Film Society will present the next International Film of the semester on Wednesday, October 1st at 7:00 pm in the auditorium of the Neville Public Museum.
In director Randa Chahal Sabbag’s ‘fairytale for troubled times’, sixteen-year old Lamia must cross a border checkpoint between Lebanon and Israel to marry a man she has never met. Neither she nor her betrothed are eager to consummate a marriage to a stranger. A matter further complicated by Lamia’s surprising admission that she is in love with the Israeli soldier guarding the border. Sabbag’s enchanting drama about marriage and tradition is underscored by delicate symbolism and artful references to politics of Lebanon’s territories that have been annexed.
All are welcome to attend.
