Storyline

Jerusalem: A city of contrasts and conflicts, where Arabs, Jews, Christians and Muslims all mix but seldom mingle. This is where David, a young Israeli Jew, and Fatima, a beautiful Palestinian Muslim girl, meet and fall in love. But in a volatile land that is steeped in tradition and soaked in blood, their love is forbidden. Despite their best efforts to keep their romance a secret, their friends and families find out the truth, and their reactions are swift and violent. David and Fatima must act quickly to avoid losing each other forever. Willing to risk all for the sake of love, they elope in a land where marriage between them is impossible and the consequences of being together - deadly. In this dramatic story of love, destiny, and the search for peace in the Holy Land, David and Fatima struggle to beat the odds and in doing so challenge not only their families but Fate itself.

David and Fatima- Stunning! A Must-See!
30 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David and Fatima is an important film that touches on the topic of racial hatred in the middle East and keeps the viewer in close connection with the characters, the human condition, and the human spirit. . .

Cameron Van Hoy delivers an awesome, stunning performance unlike anyone I've seen in a long time, for a young man of his stature.

Everyone else did a superb job in making the film a success.

As an independent feature film, I found it to be very powerful, emotional, stunning, and overall it moved me. I haven't seen a film have that kind of effect on me in years!
