I’ve made the jokes, I knew it was only a matter of time, now someone’s finally gone and done it.
Ladies and Gentlemen, West Bank Story
Made by an Israeli film student at USC, the short film features original music, dance sequences, the whole shebang.
West Bank Story is a musical comedy about David, an Israeli soldier, and Fatima, a Palestinian fast food cashier – an unlikely couple who fall in love amidst the animosity of their families’ dueling falafel stands in the West Bank.
Could have been total cheese, but after screening at over 25 film festivals including Cannes, reports seem to indicate it’s actually well done and funny.
Look for it at a film fest near you.
