“Let It Be Morning”, New Film by Eran Kolirin

Let It Be Morning is the story of Sami (Alex Bakri) a Palestinian-born Israeli citizen living in Jerusalem who receives an invitation to his brother’s wedding forcing him to return to the Arab village where he grew up.

When the wedding ends, without warning or explanation, Sami’s hometown is put under a military lockdown by Israeli soldiers. When chaos erupts overnight amongst the villagers stuck behind the wall due to the blockade, Sami is cut off from the outside world and trapped in an unexpected situation.

As he deals with questions about his own identity, hidden secrets are revealed. Sami watches how everything he holds dear begins to fall apart.

Written and directed by award-winning Israeli filmmaker Eran Kolirin (The Band’s Visit), and adapted from the international best-selling novel by Palestinian author Sayed Kashua, Let It Be Morning is a film about a state of siege, both internal and external, centered around a man who has built a wall around his heart, and how that inner wall starts coming apart when an actual, real wall goes up around his hometown.
