The Mississauga Film Series showcases international and independant cinema. Held at the AMC Theatre, Courtney Park, Mississauga, the screenings will take place on the last Wednesday of each month.

The Bubble
Downtown Tel Aviv’s Sheinkin Street is as sexy, cosmopolitan urban landscape – cafes, alternative record shops, gay bars, student protests, the works. It could not be further from the nearby reality of occupied Palestine. Gifted Israeli director Eytan Fox (YOSSI & JAGGER, WALK ON WATER) pricks this “bubble” in his new film. It is a breathtakingly urgent, convulsively funny and then impossibly tragic love story. Lulu (Daniella Wircer) lives with two gay guys: brooding music lover Noam (Ohad Knoller, MUNICH) and flamboyant cafĂ© owner Yali (Alon Friedmann). The roommates’ days and nights are spent in typical slacker fashion – hanging out, watching TV, getting laid. They are secular and progressive, but not overly political.

Everything changes when Noam meets Ashraf (Yousef “Joe” Sweid, WALK ON WATER), a cute and intense Palestinian guy, at a checkpoint. Ashraf becomes part of their group, while Lulu and Yali also fall dramatically in and out of love. One almost believes that the two men could inspire change as symbols of peace, but their affair is already doomed.

Tickets available in advance at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, Blackwood Gallery, UTM Student Union or the evening of the screening from 6:30pm at the AMC Courtney Park
