Opening Gala: Mediterranean Fever (15) + Pre-recorded ScreenTalk

London Palestine Film Festival 2022

Two men speak near a body of water

Winner of a Best Screenplay award at Cannes this year, Maha Haj’s dark buddy comedy/drama explores psychological well-being, aspiration, and masculinity within an oppressive political framework.

Waleed, a stay-at-home dad living in Haifa, is balancing his dream of being a novelist and his battle with chronic depression. Just as his frustration is settling into writer’s block, Waleed sees light in the unlikeliest of places.

When Jalal, a small-time crook with a big heart, moves in next door, what starts out as a tense introduction, quickly develops into a close friendship. But Waleed has an ulterior motive that leads the two friends into a journey of dark encounters.
