A Borrowed Identity

ABorrowedIdentity 550"A wonderful, incomparable Israeli film that is psychologically insightful, funny, sad, and profound.” –Jewish Currents

From Eran Riklis, the director of SYRIAN BRIDE and THE LEMON TREE, and Sayed Kashua, perhaps the most popular Palestinian writer, comes the story of a gifted Israeli Arab boy who is invited to attend Jerusalem’s most prestigious boarding school. But can this boy, an outsider in a suspicious society, coexist? Featuring some of Israel’s most popular actors, this funny, poignant tale of cross-cultural pressures was nominated for four Israeli Oscars. (Israel, 2014, 105m, Strand Releasing, digital)
