Villagers

A tempestuous Palestinian love story that takes place along the Separation Wall. The story ends and Majdi decides to leave the country because his dreams and the poppies can no longer find their space along the wall. His love, Salma, tries to stop him from doing so, to no avail. Suddenly, Majdi and Salma run away from their secret love-nest near the wall, after Abu Mustapha finds them out. The tragic love story ends, and another story begins with another protagonist. The gray, giant, absurd Wall remains, however. Because it is simply an absurd film. Because cinema is frivolous; it is absurd
