LOVE DURING WARTIME follows Osama and Jasmin, newlyweds trying to build a life together against what look like impossible odds: she’s Israeli, he’s Palestinian. When their homelands turn their backs on them, they choose to live in exile. This tender tale of a love infiltrated by politics follows a real-life Romeo and Juliet on their odyssey from the Middle East through an inhospitable Europe. As their hopes rise and fade with each bureaucratic hurdle, will their love survive?

Official Selection – 2011 Tribeca Film Festival; 2011 Silverdocs Documentary Film Festival
