PARADISE NOW

This is the story of two Palestinian childhood friends who have been recruited for a major operation in Tel Aviv. It centers on what is presumably their final day on earth. They cannot utter a word of their plans to their families. The following day, the two are sent to the border. The bombs have been attached to their bodies in such a way as to make them completely hidden from view. However, the operation does not go according to plan. The two friends are forced to reconsider their stances after a woman comes into the picture. She provides the voice of reason about the futility of armed resistance. The two friends lose sight of each other, leaving each one up to their own fate, while struggling with their convictions. The film brings to the fore many core issues in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It gives voice to the Palestinian condemnation of violence while offering insight into the individuals behind such violent acts. It portrays confused recruits struggling with the justification of armed resistance, and the difference between an Israeli and a Palestinian city.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House.
