'Ana Arabia' among Venice festival favourites

Movie about Israeli-Palestinian conflict claims to be something different with its unique way of shooting.

    A film that tells the tale of a marriage at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is being touted as a possible winner of the Venice Film Festival's most prestigious award.

    "Ana Arabia" - or "Me, The Arab" - was also shot in a unique way as one long take with no breaks.

    Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle reports from Venice on the movie and its chances.
