West Bank Story is a comedy/musical short film directed by Ari Sandel, co-written by Sandel and Kim Ray. It's a parody of the classic musical film West Side Story, which in turn is an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. The film follows the romance between Fatima and David, the daughter and son of the owners of rival restaurants in the West Bank – one Israeli and the other Palestinian – respectively named the Kosher King and the Hummus Hut. West Bank Story premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival and was screened at numerous other film festivals across the world.
