  • ReelIsraelDC: "A Bottle in the Gaza Sea"

    Event

    Offering the best contemporary Israeli cinema on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 8:00 PM in collaboration with the Embassy of Israel, the Washington Jewish Film Festival and The Avalon Theatre.


    17-year-old Tal has emigrated from France to Jerusalem with her family. She writes a letter expressing her refusal to accept that only hatred can reign between Israelis and Palestinians. She slips the letter into a bottle, and her brother throws it into the sea near Gaza, where he is carrying out his military service. A few weeks later, Tal receives an e-mail response from a mysterious "Gazaman," a young Palestinian named Naim. Thus begins a turbulent but tender long-distance friendship between two young people that are separated by a history they are trying both to understand and change. This engrossing and hopeful drama starring Hiam Abbas is based on the award-winning novel by Valérie Zenatti.
