Omar is a tense, gripping thriller about betrayal, suspected and real, in the Occupied Territories. Omar is a Palestinian baker who routinely climbs over the separation wall to meet up with his girl, Nadja. By night, he’s either a freedom fighter or a terrorist ready to risk his life to strike at the Israeli military with his childhood friends Tarek and Amjad. Arrested after the killing of an Israeli soldier and tricked into an admission of guilt by association, he agrees to work as an informant. So begins a dangerous game—is he playing his Israeli handler or will he really betray his cause? Who can be trusted on either side? A dynamic, action-packed drama about the unsolvable moral dilemmas and tough choices facing those trapped on the frontlines of a conflict over which they have little control. (96 mins.)

Filmography: Ford Transit (03), Paradise Now (05).

Sponsored by KBOO.
