Showing at Cannes today: Jaffa, directed by Keren Yedaya

From the Cannes website:

In the heart of Jaffa, a city nicknamed "the Bride of the Sea" by the Israelis, Reuven's garage is a family business. His daughter Mali and his son Meir, as well as Toufik and Hassan, a young Palestinian and his father, work there for Reuven. No one suspects that Mali and Toufik have been in love for years. As the two lovers are secretly making their wedding arrangements, tension builds between Meir and Toufik…

Keren Yedaya won the Camera d'Or in 2004 for her film Or (My Treasure).
