Join South London’s Screen25 Cinema on the fourth Wednesday of every month for Odyssey Film Club, a special strand designed to shine a light on cinema from around the world.

This February take a journey to Palestine for Annemarie Jacir’s multi-award winning road movie Wajib.

Shadi returns home to Palestine to join his father in the centuries-old tradition of hand delivering wedding invitations for his sister’s wedding, a formality known as ‘Wajib’. What follows is an often funny and touching familial road movie, intertwined with the striking political uncertainties of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

A nuanced and cleverly portrayed story of family living under oppression, and the unavoidable cross-generational tensions that come with parent-child relationships.

Stay after the film to enjoy some traditional Palestinian food and drink, alongside a roundtable discussion.
