Jewish Israeli filmmaker Eran Kolirin is best known for his 2007 film, The Band’s Visit, a film about an Egyptian band who becomes stranded in a small town in Israel. Let It Be Morning also deals with confinement in a small community when Israeli military forces block the only road out of a village. A Palestinian family with Israeli citizenship is stuck in the village along with others who were in the area for a wedding. There are clear political themes running throughout Kolirin’s film, but more impactful are the relatable human moments. To consider Let It Be Morning as a film either implicitly or unintentionally addressing Covid-era themes seems like low-hanging fruit, however accurate. At the center of the film are a group of people longing to fix the mess that they have made from their lives, while also being limited in what choices are available due to the circumstances of their situation.
