  • Stars in Broad Daylight

    1988. Syria. Written and directed by Oussama Mohamma. With Abdellatif Abdul-Hamid. A double wedding in a small village turns into high drama when one bride runs away in the middle of the ceremony and the other refuses to get married. Rife with biting humor and sharp political critique, the film shows how the violence of arbitrary power in a patriarchal society seeps into the family unit. 115 min.
