A BORROWED IDENTITY (July 31 - August 6)

Only at Digital Gym CINEMA North Park

A Palestinian-Israeli boy named Eyad is sent to a prestigious boarding school in Jerusalem, where he struggles with issues of language, culture, and identity.


Synopsis: Gifted Eyad (Tawfeek Barhom), a Palestinian Israeli boy, is given the chance to go to a prestigious Jewish boarding school in Jerusalem. As he desperately tries to fit in with his Jewish schoolmates and within Israeli society, Eyad develops a friendship with another outsider, Jonathan (Michael Moshonov, Lebanon) a boy suffering from muscular dystrophy, and gradually becomes part of the home Jonathan shares with his mother, Edna (Yael Abecassis, Kadosh, Alila, To Live and Become). After falling in love with Naomi (Daniel Kitsis), a Jewish girl, he leaves school when their relationship is uncovered, and he discovers that he will have to sacrifice his identity in order to be accepted. Faced with a choice, Eyad will have to make a decision that will change his life forever.


Critic Quotes: “Nicely balanced between levity and poignancy, Kashua's script provides a twist at the end that is certain to provoke strong reaction from both sides of the historical divide.” - Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
“Dazzling! Wonderful! Profound!” - Jewish Currents
