Dr. Amin Jaafari is an assimilated Arab surgeon with a promising career and honors among the Israelis in Tel Aviv. That changes after a devastating terrorist suicide bombing and his beloved wife, Siham, is found among the dead as the primary suspect. Although initially refusing to accept that as Shin Bet interrogates him, Amin comes to realize the allegations are true. Now, the ostracized Amin resolves to find out on his own why Siham had so strong a conviction that she kept secret from him. However, the answers prove hard to come by and the truths involved have a terrible pain of their own. 2012 – 102 Minutes – Drama – Arabic/Hebrew with subtitles – R.

Sunday, July 20th – 2014 Cinema Israel Film Series “Footnote” – at the Figge Art Museum
Auditorium (225 W. 2nd St., Davenport, IA) – 4 PM; Tickets at the door: Adults $7; Seniors (60+) and Military $6; Students Free.
The story of a great rivalry between a father and son, both eccentric professors in the Talmud department of Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The son has an addictive dependency on the embrace and accolades that the establishment provides, while his father is a stubborn purist with a fear and profound revulsion for what the establishment stands for, yet beneath his contempt lies a desperate thirst for some kind of recognition. The Israel Prize, Israel's most prestigious national award, is the jewel that brings these two to a final, bitter confrontation. 2011 – 103 Minutes – Comedy/Drama – Hebrew with subtitles – PG.
