Inch’Allah from Quebec born director AnaÃ¯s Barbeau-Lavalette makes is TIFF 2012 appearance as part of the Special Presentations programme.
The film follows Chloe, a Canadian obstetrician transplanted to a West Bank clinic. While Chloe works with patients with high-risk pregnancies, she encounters all of the glorious absurdities of war. Chloe is an outsider, with interests on both sides of the conflict, but has to confront an age-old conundrum - how you live in a routinized cycle of violence and not internalize it?
Why should you see it?
Inch’Allah screens on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 6:00 pm at TIFF Bell Lightbox, as well as Monday, September 10, 2012 at 6:45 pm at Scotiabank 3.
