"Let It Be Morning" to Screen in Ship Bottom

(SHIP BOTTOM, NJ) -- Adapting a Hebrew-language novel by the Palestinian author Sayed Kashua, the screenwriter-director Eran Kolirin uses the escalating absurdity of a family trapped in the wrong place at the wrong time to guide his new film “Let It Be Morning.” Lighthouse International Film Society and Cynthia Friedland, Re/Max of LBI present a screening of the film on Thursday, March 23 at 7:30pm in the Ship Bottom Firehouse.

After attending the wedding of his brother in the small village where he was raised, Sami (Alex Bakri)—a Palestinian citizen of Israel now living in Jerusalem—finds the village has been inexplicably blockaded and locked down, preventing his family from returning home.

Without cell phone service and cutoff from the rest of the world, the family must weather the evening while negotiating the escalating absurdity of their captivity. With the ever present undercurrent of suspense and possible violence, the film walks a fine line blending these elements with droll humor and absurdist fun.

Admission is $10 online/$12 door (free to LIF Society members). Click here for ticket information. Advance reservations are strongly encouraged and appreciated.

Ship Bottom Firehouse is located at 2006 Central Ave in Ship Bottom, New Jersey.
