The tale of a young Jewish woman and a young Arab man in love… but also an allegory of the Middle East peace process, when the Camp David summit abruptly broke off, effectively sealing the fate of the Oslo negotiations.
Working on two levels, the film captures the wrought Israeli-Palestinian relationship, and a love fought with the burden of political adversity. A Hisham Zreiq film, rich with symbolism, subtle hints… nothing more to add, nothing left to take away. Great authentic acting helps audience to identify with the protagonists.
Just Another Day", a short film, tells the story of a young Arab man in Europe after the September 11 terror attacks. The film takes place in his apartment somewhere in Europe, providing a stroboscopic account of a day in the man’s life:
a day when his city is struck by another terror attack, a sad day because he is suffering after the woman he loves left him – precisely because he is an Arab. A day just like any other day that reflects the difficult post 9/11 status of Arabs in the Western world.
