Winner of numerous international awards, from Best Film at the Montreal Film Festival to Public Choice Award in Locarno, The Syrian Bride is one of Israel’s best quality features in recent years.

Young bride Mona knows that once she crosses the border between Israel and Syria to marry Tallel, a Syrian soap star, she will never be able to return to her home and her family in Majdal Shams, a Druz village in the Israeli occupied Golan Heights. But when she gets to the border and looks set to begin a new life, some surprises await her. Family tensions, political divisions and an array of cultures are interwoven as the wedding day reaches its peak. This is a powerful drama about the personal complication created by the Israeli–Syrian border. Through moments of tenderness, love and humour, we see how human emotions can cross political boundaries.
