Under the Same Sun

A Film by: Sameh Zoabi
(Israel, 2012, 84 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, Arabic and English, English subtitles, Cast: Yossi Marshak, Ali Suliman, Lucy Aharish, Bassem Loulou, Noa Barkai)

The film is set in the near future, and it looks back at the story of two businessmen - one Palestinian and one Israeli - who struggle to set up a solar energy company. Both come from societies where there is strong opposition to cooperating with the other, and the film tells how they overcome hostility from within their own families and from the people around them. In the end, they mount a Facebook campaign that impacts their joint venture and ultimately changes the political map.

QUOTES

 “It’s a good looking film that does its job admirably. And that job is to educate a population whose lack of understanding is an actual obstacle to peace.”
Daniel Friedman, Jewish Daily Forward
