Featuring the work of Palestinian National Poet Mahmoud Darwish, the award-winning Arab-American film TRIUMPH67 follows two Palestinian-American brothers on their search for identity and home through the heartland of America.
1987: the Super8 camera of fifteen-year-old Palestinian-expat Mohannad Aziz has captured the idyllic summer romance between his handsome older brother Sami and Flora, a lovely American student. Seventeen years later, much has changed. Mohannad has achieved prominence in radio while Sami's photography hasn't quite taken off. In the aftermath of Sami's sudden death, Mohannad finds the past closer than he guesses, and that secrets rarely remain hidden. Conflicted memories of his beloved brother vie uneasily with his still-potent attraction to Flora and Mohannad must grapple with past, present, and his own secrets from that long ago summer.
“Poignant and moody, the film recalls ‘Blow Up,’ the French New Wave and such indie American classics as ‘The King of Marvin Gardens.’”
— Colin Covert, StarTribune
