Swanky Bettors - on West bank Story

May a movie bring some peace in the Middle East? A litte singing, a little dancing, a lot of humm(our)us. A nice feature for this 60th anniversary of the Foundation of the state of Israel.
Swanky Bettors may bet on West bank Story (online video here, and IMDB page there) by Ari Sandel. Official selection of the 2005 Sundance film fest, 28 prizes won in festivals. Love inside inter-family confrontation in a FFF (falafel-fast-food, not FFF, not FFF) world, KK (Kosher-King) against HH (Hummus Hut). David and Fatima replay Romeo and Juliet and West side story. Wanna trade chickpeas for a chic peace?
