Personal Affairs

SERET London - The Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Maha Haj | 2016 | Israel | Arabic and English with English subtitles | Starring Sanaa Shawahdeh, Mahmoud Shawahdeh, Doraid Liddawi, Hanan Hillo, Ziad Bakri, Amer Hlehel, Maisa Abd Elhadi, Jihan Dermelkonian | 88mins

This is the debut feature film for Maha Haj, already a highly regarded Palestinian film set designer, which is already attracting strong international attention for its touching and gently comic treatment of the lives of a Palestinian family across three generations.

In Nazareth a weary middle-aged couple lives to the rhythm of their daily routine. On the other side of the border, in Ramallah, their son Tarek wants to remain an eternal bachelor. Their daughter is about to give birth while her husband lands a movie role, and their grandmother loses her head.

Between check-points and dreams, frivolity and politics, some want to leave, others want to stay, but all have personal affairs to resolve.

“Personal Affairs touches on the inescapable melancholy of modern life, but is as graceful as a tango dance in the process” – Tim Grierson, Screen Daily
