Habibi

From Hira Jafri ’13:

Habibi is a story of forbidden love set in Palestine where two students in the West Bank are forced to return home to Gaza, where their love defies tradition. To reach his lover, Qays grafittis poetry across town. Habibi is a modern re-telling of the famous ancient Sufi parable Majnun Layla- the precursor to Romeo and Juliet. Director Susan Youssef will be joining to talk about media in Palestine and self-funding film projects. The film will be introduced by Professor Steve Collins.
