Two Israeli film directors bring films to SA


    Within the Eye of the Storm:
    Bassam Aramin and Rami Elhanan, a Palestinian and Israeli, were once dedicated fighters willing to kill and be killed by one another for the sake of their nations. Then each had a young daughter killed in the conflict. Left with the excruciating pain of bereavement, they did the unexpected and
    set out on a joint journey to humanize the very enemy that took the dearest thing from them and prevent the vicious cycle of retaliation in themselves and their societies. Along the way they reveal the friendship and humor that keep them alive.
    The Invisible Men:
    The Invisible Men' tells the untold story of persecuted gay Palestinian who have run away from their families and are now hiding illegally in Tel Aviv. Their stories are told through the film's heroes: Louie, 32 years old, a gay Palestinian who has been hiding in Tel Aviv for the past 8 years; Abdu, 24 years old, who was exposed as gay in Ramallah and then accused of espionage and tortured by Palestinian security forces; Faris, 23 years old, who escaped to Tel Aviv from the West Bank after his family tried to kill him. Their only chance for survival -- to seek asylum outside Israel and Palestine and leave their homelands forever behind
