OT: Wajib

Annemarie Jacir // Palestine, France, Germany, Colombia, Norway, Qatar, United Ar Emirates, 2017
Fiction Feature // FF2017



Architect Shadi is not exactly overjoyed that he has to return to his home city of Nazareth after years of living in Rome – but Palestinian tradition obliges him. His sister is going to get married and Shadi and his father have to hand out the invitations personally. Together, the two men drive through the streets of Nazareth and realize that their fundamentally different lifestyles are the cause of more tension than anticipated. Wajib portrays not only a generational conflict with great sensitivity and a goodly portion of humour, but also life in modern Nazareth.


ANNEMARIE JACIR (*1974) is an independent Palestinian film-maker and author, and represents the Arab New Wave. Her previous film When I Saw You was the Palestinian entry for the Foreign Language Oscar in 2013.
