Film and Discussion – “The Green Prince”
Gather at Chochmat on the first Tuesday of each month to watch screenings of powerful documentaries about Israel-Palestine. Each film features a facilitated discussion afterward; all voices are welcome. This first film is free.
“The Green Prince” is a documentary thriller that traces the story of the son of a founding leader of Hamas, who becomes a spy for the Israelis during the Second Intifada. Revolving primarily around interviews with Mosab Hassan Yousef and his Israeli Shin Bet handler, Gonen ben Yitzhak, the film s based on Yousef’s autobiography and includes archival footage and re-enactments. Winner of several awards including “Best Documentary” in Israel, the Green Prince provides an almost unbelievably transparent glimpse into both Israeli and Palestinian perspectives on the conflict, and those working to thwart violence, under cover yet close to the front lines.
