"Just Married" (Israel, 2005)

3 Church St . Cambridge

A documentary film about Israel's apartheid marriage laws that discriminate against Arabs and Palestinians. Israel's 2003 "Citizenship Law" states that residents of the Palestinian territories may not enter the Jewish state, even if married to an Israeli. So what happens when a Palestinian falls in love with another Arab -- who happens to live in Israel? Deftly managing to be intimate without being intrusive, Bechar's award-winning documentary follows the plight of two couples who fall into this legal void and who struggle with myriad uncertainties after deciding tomarry despite the prohibition against their living together in Israel. Among many breathtaking and heart-wrenching scenes is one, worthy of Orwell, in which an Israeli official delineates the exact application process a couple must follow -- only to casually mention how their application will then be denied.

Suggested donation $5.00. Sponsored by United for Justice with Peace Palestine Task Force, Justice in the Middle East Task Force at First Parish Cambridge, Code Pink Greater Boston and Jewish Voice for Peace, Boston Chapter
