Film Discussion with Dick Adler

Wednesday, November 19, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Omar (2013)
Omar is accustomed to dodging surveillance bullets to cross the separation wall to visit his secret love Nadia, but occupied Palestine knows neither simple love nor clear-cut war. When Omar is captured after a deadly act of resistance, he finds himself in a cat-and-mouse game with the military police. Suspicion and betrayal jeopardize his longtime trust with his childhood friends, and it is soon evident that everything he does is for his love of Nadia. Directed by Hany Abu-Assad.

Sponsored by Friends of the Highland Park Public Library.

The film will NOT be shown prior to the discussion. Copies are available in the A-V Department.
