Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Filmed in the Arabic and Hebrew languages, Wedding in Galilee takes place in the occupied West Bank of Palestine. The story is set in motion by a village elder, who intends to give his son a traditional wedding. This may prove impossible if the elder cannot enlist the encouragement of the local Israeli leaders. To do this, he is forced to invite those leaders to the wedding. No mere "culture clash" drama, Wedding in Galilee is a multitextured drama that serves as an eye-opener for any non-Israeli or non-Palestinian who thinks he's got the mideast situation "figured out."
