Palestinian Territory, 2013
Drama

Synopsis

A young Palestinian freedom fighter agrees to work as an informant after he’s tricked into an admission of guilt by association in the wake of an Israeli soldier’s killing.

Our take

Han Abu-Assad’s various films have all handled the many complexities of the Israeli-Palestine conflict with great precision and sensitivity. Despite moving with the caustic speed of a thriller, Omar is no exception with its intimate sense of life under occupation and political struggle.
