JVP 4th Wednesday Film Series presents Paradise Now film and discussion
Paradise Now, a 2005 drama by Palestinian Hany Abu-Assad, follows childhood friends Said and Khaled, who live in Nablus and have been recruited for suicide attacks in Tel Aviv. It focuses on what would be their last days.
The film won a Golden Globe for best foreign language film and was nominated for an Oscar. It "is an artistic point of view of that political issue,” Abu-Assad said. “The politicians want to see it as black and white, good and evil, and art wants to see it as a human thing.”
