Inch'Allah is a Canadian drama film, released in 2012. Written and directed by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette, the film stars Évelyne Brochu as Chloé, a Canadian medical doctor with the Red Crescent. Stationed at a clinic in Ramallah, West Bank and crossing daily past the checkpoints to and from her apartment in Jerusalem, she finds her loyalties torn as she witnesses the effects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on her friends, colleagues and patients on both sides of the border.

The film's cast also includes Sabrina Ouazani, Sivan Levy, Yousef Sweid, Hammoudeh Alkarmi, Zorah Benali, Carlo Brandt, Marie-Thérèse Fortin, Ahmad Massad and Yoav Donat.

The film garnered five Canadian Screen Awards nominations at the 1st Canadian Screen Awards, including nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role (Brochu), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Ouazani), Best Cinematography (Philippe Lavalette) and Best Editing (Sophie Leblond).[1] Barbeau-Lavalette was named artist of the year for 2012 by Les Artistes pour la paix, a Montreal-based organization that honours works of art involving themes of peace, in February 2013.[2] In the same month, Inch'Allah was awarded the FIPRESCI Prize for the Panorama section of the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.[3]
