Trailer for Habibi.

Habibi uncannily re-casts Majnun Layla (Mad for Layla), the 9th century classical poetry tragic love epic, in today’s Gaza Strip. Qays and Layla are madly in love, but observant Khan Yunis they have to be married to be together. Qays is poor, Layla’s parents turn him away. Qays woos Layla by scribbling verse all over Khan Yunis’s walls. Habibi is a compelling ode to emancipation.
