Najwa Najjar's multiaward winning short film is a tale of two lovers trying to cross divides to be together ... they thought nothing could stop them. Ziyad, a Palestinian man who sells flowers in a nearby village is in love with Yasmine, a village girl. At night they meet in secret away from the disapproving villagers' eyes. And while Yasmine's parents are busy arranging her future, an unexpected development changes everyone's lives. Yasmine's Song is beautifully shot in rural Palestine and features captivating performances from some of Palestine's finest actors (including Hesham Suleiman, Hanan Hillo, and Mohammad Bakri). The script's subtle exploration of the challenges posed by social, political, cultural and physical barriers signals Najjar's emergence as one of Palestine's most promising writerdirectors.
