(Foreign language film with English subtitles)

César nominee writer/director Karin Albou's bold second feature lifts the lid on a chapter of WWII history that has rarely been shown. Reminiscent of women-led wartime films such as 'Aimée & Jaguar' and 'The Diary of Anne Frank', 'The Wedding Song' explores both Jewish and Arab cultures and female sexuality to winning effect.

Tunis, 1942: Against the Allied bombs and the goosesteps of the Nazi occupiers, two teenage girlfriends, one Muslim, the other Jewish, cling to the bond theyve shared since childhood. However, the world shared by Jews and Arabs is being split by German promises of liberation theyll rid Tunis of the French and the Jews. As Myriam is no longer safe, her mother attempts to marry her off to a wealthy doctor to save them both. But Myriam doesn't want to get married, so she and Nour make efforts to scupper the wedding plans
