Abu Shadi is a divorced father and teacher in Nazareth. Shadi, his son, arrives from Rome after years abroad to help his father with his sister’s wedding, hand delivering the invitations to each guest per local custom. As the pair spend the day together, the tense relationship comes to a head.

MUBI's take

Palestinian filmmaker Annemarie Jacir directs this lively, low-key road movie, an instant audience favorite in 2017. With the two leads played by a real-life father and son, and a sense of humor permeating throughout, Wajib heart-warmingly explores the clash between tradition and modernity.
