Annemarie Jacir’s prizewinning comic drama explores the lives of Palestinians living in Israel, and stars real-life father and son Mohammad and Saleh Bakri. The title of Wajib translates as ‘duty’, and it is duty that brings architect Shadi from Rome back to Nazareth, where his sister Amal is to be married. As the duo drive around the suburbs, delivering wedding invitations in the traditional way, past frustrations and different perspectives provide unexpected insights, hilarity and undeniable warmth.

An intimate, well-played disquisition on what it means to be a Palestinian abroad versus a Palestinian at home.Variety
