Overview

A family deals with the typical anxieties of a wedding day while also confronting the political turmoil of the Middle East in this drama, a collaboration between Israeli and Palestinian filmmakers. Hammed Makram J. Khoury is a leading political figure in Majdal Shams, a Druze community that has been under Israeli occupation since the late '60s. Years ago, Hammed arranged for his daughter Mona Clara Khoury to marry Tallel Derar Sliman, who has since become a successful actor in Syria. Hammed has gathered the family together to see Mona off, but the occasion is a bittersweet one -- given the combative relationship between Israel and Syria, once Mona crosses the border with her husband, it's unlikely she will ever be able to return. Hammed's oldest son, Hattem Eyad Sheety, comes back from Russia, where he now lives with his wife, but his father still refuses to forgive him for leaving the land of his birth. Marwan Ashraf Barhoum, a younger son, is a businessman living in Italy who uses his visit home as an opportunity to visit Jeanne Julie-Anne Roth, an American United Nations representative he's been dating. And daughter Amal Hiam Abbass helps her sister Mona deal with the stress and details of her big day as she struggles to live as a modern woman while married to Amin Adnan Tarabshi, who wants his spouse to follow a more traditional path. Makram J. Khoury was ideally cast as Hammed in at least one respect -- he's the real life father of Clara Khoury, who plays his screen daughter Mona.

    The Syrian Bride is an amazing story that is being repeated as we speak. The borders that carve up the world are not only lines that are manipulated by politicians and the military powers of our time. They are insurmountable barriers erected to divide people. In this story a young bride crosses one of these borders alone and illegally. She is watched by the family she can never return too and the family in Syria she has yet to meet. Israeli and Syrian border officials watch as the bride takes her destiny into her own hands and makes the decision that will change her life. She leaves behind her family and everything she has known in the Golan to be with her future husband a man she has never meet. Could we be so brave? Could we cross a border knowing we could never return home in search of hope, love, and freedom? A must see movie Mashallah
