Inch' allah (2012)
This This is a movie made by French Canadians (Telefilm Canada Quebec
production) that features as
the main actress a woman who clearly is French but has some semblance of
features you'd find
to some extent in an Arab woman from mideastern areas too potentially I'd say.
The intent I believe is to bring to the attention of the world, the plight of
Arab women in particular
9like herself) - even as an aid worker - a Doctor in fact, being treated with
incredulity by Israeli
forces when human rights concerns are raised. In one such scene a soldier points
a gun in response
to her appeals for a humanly valid response to a situation requiring it without
hesitation or question
as her own conscience would dictate that she require compliance from the
occupying force in Palestine
to conform to humane ideals as she demands in the situation - only to be told to
"shut up" and be
threatened with an assault rifle "at ready' and aimed at her person by an
Israeli male soldier (as
scripted in this movie of course). Time to end the nightmare over there.
Inshallah means "god willing"
as the title is meant to infer with hope clearly, no doubt.
