The Little Traitor

88 Minutes, 2007

Based on the novel “Panther in the Basement” by the world renowned author, Amos Oz, the movie takes place in Palestine in 1947, just a few months before Israel becomes a state. Proffy Liebowitz, a militant yet sensitive eleven year old wants nothing more than for the occupying British to get the hell out of his land. Proffy and his two friends are always plotting ways to terrorize the British until one evening is seized by Sergeant Dunlop, a British officer. Instead of arresting him though, he deposits him back home. Proffy attaches himself to Dunlop. When Proffy’s friends follow him one day and see that he has been visiting the detested enemy they report him to the town officials and Proffy is brought to “trial” for being a traitor.
