Mediterranean Fever

Maha Haj, 108 min, Drama, in Arabic with English subtitles, Palestine/Germany/France/Cyprus/Qatar, 2022.


A drama-thriller that mixes melancholy with humor, Mediterranean Fever is about Waleed, a 40-year-old aspiring unsuccessful writer suffering from chronic depression and struggling with living his day-to-day life, being gradually devoured by his condition while trying to remain a loving father. Waleed meets his opposite Jalal, a simple but full of life small-time crook, who is almost invisible to depression. The two worlds, shared by the two friends in Haifa, unveil their true nature and become a remedy to their existential crisis. But not for long, with an unexpected twist at the end.   

The film was Palestine's official entry to last year’s 95th Academy Awards. It also won the "Un Certain Regard" Screenplay Prize at the Cannes Film Festival 2022. In addition, it has won three awards in international film festivals and was nominated in 11 film festivals.
