(PCM) Nadav Schirman’s gripping documentary, The Green Prince, is the story of the son of a Hamas leader becoming an Israeli spy, which strikes a raw nerve with the current events taking place in the Middle East.
Set against the chaotic backdrop of recent events in the Middle East, Nadav Schirman’s The Green Prince retraces the details of a highly unprecedented partnership that developed between sworn enemies.
In the style of a tense psychological thriller, this extraordinary documentary recounts the true story of the son of a Hamas leader who emerged as one of Israel’s prized informants, and the Shin Bet agent who risked his career to protect him.
Based on Mosab Hassan Yousef’s bestselling memoir Son of Hamas, The Green Prince exposes a complex world of terror, betrayal, and impossible choices.
Through exclusive first-hand testimony, dramatic action sequences, and rare archival footage, decades of secrets come to light in this unflinching exploration of a profound spiritual transformation and the transcendent bonds of friendship.
The Green Prince will challenge much of what you know about the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
