Screening of Palestinian Feature Film - "In the 9th Month"
Saturday, June 7th 2003 5:15 p.m.
Los Angeles, California


Synopsis: Khalil, Ahmed's older brother was forced to seek refuge in Lebanon a month after his marriage to Samira. For 10 long years Samira, loyal to their love, waits. Risking his life, Khalil now illegally returns to his village in the north of Israel. With Ahmed, his younger brother's help, Khalil secretly meets with Samira.

At the same time a young boy disappears. Ahmed, with his strange manners and black dress, is accused by the villagers of being "The man who drags his butt in a basket" - a mythic dark figure in an old fable about a man who kidnaps children and sells them.

The scandal that follows results in tragedy. This is a story of a family falling apart, in the context of a political conflict beyond control. But despite all odds the film carries a sign of hope and reconciliation.
