Description

Ali’s Wedding - Romantic Comedy - 110 mins - M

Ali, the son of Iraqi refugees, aspires to study medicine at Melbourne University. Will he get in? He falls for a Lebanese girl who is an academic whiz. Meanwhile a traditional arranged marriage is in store. Ali’s father is a prominent cleric and the Muslim community expect great things of the young man. When he decides to lie, things get very complicated. Don Hany (Healing) plays the father and Helena Sawires is the alluring young lady. Ali is played by Osamah Sami who arrived in Australia as a boy. He co-wrote the award-winning script, basing it on his own experience of the clash of cultures. The film is an affectionate satire of contemporary Muslim life in Australia, but its themes of family, community and being true to yourself are universal.

Doors open 20 minutes prior to the movie - the Festival Hub is open as a lounge for festival goers (located at the back of the Venue, access is from the outside to the left of the building)

The Artisan Arcade is open for festival goers for takeaway food prior to this Movie. It is directly across the road from the Venue.
