Dove's Cry

Documentary | 2012 | 52 min.
Directed by: Ganit Ilouz
Hadeel, a charismatic Arab teacher, teaches Arabic in a Jewish elementary school. Her relationships with the pupils and staff enable both parties to have a unique glance at one another's cultures, refute prejudices and dissolve fears. Yet, due to the complex Israeli reality, the meeting of these two cultures inevitably causes clashes. Back home, being 27 and a religious Muslim woman, Hadeel is being pressured to get married this year.
