Event Description
DOVE'S CRY

Dir. Ganit Ilouz (52min, Israel, 2013)
In Hebrew and Arabic with English Subtitles
Documentary
DC Premiere

Hadeel is a young charismatic teacher from Wadi Ara who teaches Arabic in a Jewish primary school. We follow this brilliant, intrepid woman for a year, at her school and home. The daily interaction she has with pupils and staff opens a cross-cultural dialogue, challenging divisive stereotypes and building a connection between Muslims and Jews. This is juxtaposed against her daily struggles with being an Arab citizen of Israel and being a single Muslim woman in her late twenties. Equal parts inspiring and heartbreaking, Hadeel’s story offers an unflinching glimpse of Israel in all of its beautiful– and at times excruciating–complexity.
