Performer Details Viewing on the big screen at Coonawarra Hall is the Comedy / Drama / Romance ‘Ali’s Wedding’. This film had its world premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival in 2016 and won the Audience Award at the Sydney Film Festival in 2017. After a “white lie” which spirals out of control, a neurotic, naive and musically gifted Muslim cleric’s eldest son must follow through with an arranged marriage, except he is madly in love with an Australian born-Lebanese girl. Ali’s Wedding is an affectionate and poignant story about family, duty and love in multi-cultural Australia. Depicting the lives of a Muslim family in Melbourne with authenticity and warmth, it finds the common bonds of all families: parents who want the best for their children and children who are trying to work out their place in the world. Truth is stranger than fiction. Ali’s Wedding is based on the real-life experience of lead actor Osamah Sami. Osamah Sami won an AACTA Award for Best Original Screenplay which he wrote in collaboration with Andrew Knight. This is a fundraiser in support of the Penola Coonawarra Stand Like Stone Wellbeing Fund, the benefit of which is solely targeted at charitable projects that benefit the Penola Coonawarra area.
