About the Film

SAND STORM | סופת חול

In a remote Bedouin village in southern Israel, a wedding is taking place. It ought to be an occasion to celebrate… but for a woman named Jalila, it’s anything but. The groom is her husband – and the marriage is to a second, much younger wife. As she endures this indignity, Jalila must also contend with a free-spirited daughter who’s determined to pursue a forbidden love. Female empowerment clashes with traditional male dominance in this riveting, intimate tale of love and betrayal.

Guest: Producer ESTEE YACOV-MECKLBERG
