The Wedding Song takes place in Tunis in the year of 1942. Two teen girl-friends defy the odds as they face the war together against nazi’s and Allied bomb threats. One girl is Muslim, the other is Jewish, and they cling to the bond they’ve shared since childhood.
The girls must use the power their parents have to defy the odds and stay safe, while remaining together. However, the world shared by Jews and Arabs is being split by German promises of liberation – they’ll rid Tunis of the French and the Jews.
Created by César nominee writer / director Karin Albou’s, the film lifts the lid on a chapter of WWII history that has rarely been shown. Reminiscent of women-led wartime films such as ‘Aimée & Jaguar’ and ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’, ‘The Wedding Song’ explores both Jewish and Arab cultures and female sexuality to winning effect.
