Short Movie of The Week: West Bank Story

West Bank Story
West Bank Story

WARNING, this is a VERY FUNNY movie (note: you need to understand middle eastern culture a bit). A musical comedy set in the fast-paced, fast-food world of competing falafel stands in the West Bank.

The Plot:

David, an Israeli soldier, falls in love with the beautiful Palestinian cashier, Fatima, despite the animosity between their families’ dueling restaurants. Can the couple’s love withstand a 2000 year old conflict and their families’ desire to control the future of the chic pea in the Middle East?

Directed by Ari Sandel, written by Kim Ray & Ari Sandel; an official selection of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival.
