Let It Be Morning Unclassified 18+
Vayehi Boker

Language: Arabic, Hebrew with English subtitles
Genre: Drama Themes: Adaptation, Cannes

A Palestinian man’s relationship with his homeland is put to the test in this Un Certain Regard–premiering film from the award-winning director of The Band’s Visit.

Sami travels with his wife and child to the village where he grew up to attend his brother’s wedding. On their way back home to Jerusalem, they are stopped by Israeli soldiers and returned to the village, around which an army blockade has formed. Sami and his family are stuck; as supplies become scarce and the village is cut off from the world, Sami’s sense of belonging is pushed to breaking point.

Adapted from the 2006 novel by Sayed Kashua, Let It Be Morning turns the lens on a village under siege to probe questions around land, Palestinian displacement and the region’s tense security situation. The film builds an atmosphere of fear and paranoia that is at once Orwellian and Kafkaesque, and, through Sami’s physical and emotional dislocation – caught between two homes and two identities – writer/director Eran Kolirin depicts a microcosm of a political and human crisis that has no easy solution.

“A quietly atmospheric piece of work with moments of comedy and pathos.” – Deadline Hollywood
