"Rana's Wedding" (Palestine, 2007). Shot in parts of Palestine and its checkpoints, the film illustrates the tribulations of holding a simple wedding in an occupied territory. The film's protagonist is a young woman who only has ten hours to marry and must hurdle the barriers of roadblocks, underpaid and overworked government workers, Israeli soldiers and Palestinian stone-throwers. The film series is funded in part by a grant from the Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language program, International Studies Division of the U.S. Department of Education.
