10:15pm – FILM
Omar, Hany Abu-Assad, Palestine, 2013
Original version in Hebrew and Arabic with Spanish subtitles

Omar is a young Palestinian used to dodging the bullets fired by soldiers guarding the wall in the occupied territories in order to visit Nadia, his secret love. But when one day he is caught after an action by the resistance, the military police begin to persecute him. Suspicion and betrayal threaten his relationship with his childhood friends, Amjad and Tariq, Nadia’s brother. Omar’s feelings become divided, like Palestine, even though all his actions are guided by his love for Nadia.

The director of Paradise Now presents a superb film, hard and realistic, both love story and gripping political thriller, featuring magnificent performances.

Not recommended for spectators under 16 years.
