The Wedding Song (Le Chant des Meri'ees)
Underwritten by Gloria and Ken Levy
Two young women, the Muslim Nour and the Jewish Myriam, are neighbors and best friends in Tunisia, North Africa, in 1942. Their world is torn asunder when the Nazis, who occupy the country, impose harsh anti-Semitic policies, which imperil the safety of Myriam and her widowed mother. The Nazis’ efforts to fan Arab hatred of their Jewish neighbors puts this friendship to a severe test, as the two women struggle against great odds to preserve their loyalty to one another. A fascinating drama of Jewish life in Tunisia during and after the Second World War. Nudity and love scenes.
