THE SYRIAN BRIDE (2004) Eran Riklis

  • JCC MetroWest 760 Northfield Avenue West Orange, NJ, 07052 United States (map)

Come see The Syrian Bride as part of La Cinémathèques largest series ever!

Mona's father, political leader Hammed, wants her to marry a Syrian comedian, but her move to Syria would likely be a permanent one, considering the political unrest between the two countries. The wedding planning is a nightmare, and tensions are high -- especially when Mona's siblings, who have moved on to new countries and complicated relationships, come home before the big day.

Film Introductions and post-screening discussion will be led by educator, artist, and filmmaker Gerard Amsellem.  This is part of a dual-series on Israeli cinema, with five films at the JCC and five at SOPAC.  Click here for more information.  Tickets are available from the JCC MetroWest box office.

Please note: Attendance to JCC Israeli Series screenings does not guarantee SOPAC screening membership.
