  • "Zaytoun" at Film Fest DC 2013

    Traversing minefields literal and political, Zaytoun is a hopeful kind of buddy road movie that recreates in tragically authentic detail the fraught world of Beirut in 1982, just before the war between Israel and Lebanon. Fahed (Abdallah El Akal), a 14-year-old Palestinian refugee, has witnessed his father's death from a bombing raid and when he's put in charge of guarding a ca  ptured Israeli fighter pilot (Stephen Dorff), he can't stop himself from shooting him. It's only a flesh wound, though, and soon Fahed decides that his enemy is the only one who can help him return to his homeland and honor his father's dream. After engineering an escape, the unlikely pair begin a tense and thrilling journey down the Mediterranean coast using every means available in order to get the pilot home to his wife and the refugee back to his family's farm. —Dave Nuttycombe
