In Inch’Allah, one of the most dire, prevailing political struggles of our time is drawn into focus through the eyes of a Canadian doctor (Evelyne Brochu) working in Palestine. Obviously the subject matter comes with baggage. Ask people what they think of Syria or Taiwan or the DKR, and you never know what answer you’ll get, but everyone has an opinion about Israel.
Written and directed by talented newcomer Anais Barbeau-Lavalette, the real pedigree of this film stems from producers Luc Dery and Kim McCraw who have taken both Incendies and Monsieur Lazhar to recent Oscar nominations. Both films, like Inch’Allah had an element of Middle Eastern culture.
