THE IDOL

DIRECTOR: Hany Abu-Assad - PALESTINE

The Idol maps the true story of Palestine’s first pop celebrity, Mohammed Assaf, and his stellar rise to fame following his victory in the 2013 season of Arab Idol. Abu-Assad (Omar) follows the remarkable story of Assaf’s journey from a refugee camp in Gaza, through to his audition in Egypt with a fake passport, to his crowning victory in Beirut which stirred the dreams, hearts, and aspirations of Palestinians at home and abroad. The first feature to be (partially) filmed on location in Gaza in decades and The Idol is sure to inspire and delight. (100 mins.)
