“Wajib follows a father and his visiting son as they, Nazareth-style, hand deliver the invitations to his daughter's wedding.
In this 2016 film Annemarie Jacir explores generational gaps, father-son alienation and the tension between ideals and lived experience in the life of Christian Palestinians in modern day Israel.
In the post film discussion, we will consider the ideas of cultural and national identities in a fast changing world.” - Yonatan Shemmer, University of Sheffield.
