Wedding in Galilee = Noce en Galilée( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in Arabic and Hebrew and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The patriarch of an occupied Arab Palestinian village wants to hold a traditional, full-scale wedding for his son, but the Israeli military governor will allow it only if he and his officers are the guests of honor. The ceremonies and festivities gradually unfold over a tense day and night, capturing diverse vignettes as tradition mingles with its discontents. Women ritually bathe and dress the bride, a flirtatious teen-aged daughter schemes to escape her old-fashioned life, and a group of young village men plot to kill the Israeli guests as the codes of hospitality and of honor clash. A horse gets loose and runs to a mined field; Israeli soldiers and Arabs must cooperate to rescue it. The film offers a paean for a fading culture, questioning the very traditions that may destroy it, even as it celebrates them

15 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ARNA'S CHILDREN tells the story of a theatre group that was established by Arna Mer Khamis. Arna comes from a Zionist family and in the 1950s married a Palestinian Arab, Saliba Khamis. On the West Bank, she opened an alternative education system for children whose regular life was disrupted by the Israeli occupation. The theatre group that she started engaged children from Jenin, helping them to express their everyday frustrations, anger, bitterness and fear. Arna's son Juliano, director of this film, was also one of the directors of Jenin's theatre. With his camera, he filmed the children during rehearsal periods from 1989 to 1996. Now, he goes back to see what happened to them. Yussef committed a suicide attack in Hadera in 2001, Ashraf was killed in the battle of Jenin, Alla leads a resistance group. Juliano, who today is one of the leading actors in the region, looks back in time in Jenin, trying to understand the choices made by the children he loved and worked with. Eight years ago, the theatre was closed and life became static and paralysed. Shifting back and forth in time, the film reveals the tragedy and horror of lives trapped by the circumstances of the Israeli occupation

"Au fil des années, Amos Gitai articule et réarticule entre elles des œuvres qui ne cessent de se répondre, de se faire écho, de ré-explorer différemment les territoires et les questionnements traversés, physiquement et imaginairement. Le 4 mai 1994, Arafat et Rabin signaient au Caire un accord de paix. Au cours des quatre mois qui ont précédé, Amos Gitai a tenu la chronique des événements et des réactions des Israéliens et des Palestiniens dans un film en quatre parties, chacune représentant un parcours."
