The Last Friday (Al Juma Al Akheria) by Yahya Alabdallah (2011, 88 min.). When Yousef learns he must undergo life-saving surgery in four days, he’s forced to revisit his past as he tries to find money for the procedure. But everywhere he turns, there are fresh assaults on his pride. With an inspired cast, including Ali Suliman (Paradise Now, The Lemon Tree, The Syrian Bride) and Yasmine Al Masri (Miral, Pomegranates and Myrrh), this artistic film about the little humiliations of everyday life was the winner of three awards at the 2011 Dubai International Film Festival.
