As you know, one of my “hot button” issues is the deplorable treatment of Palestinians by the Jewish State of Israel. This is what jazzman and philosopher Gilad Atzmon has to say about Palestinian director Hany Abu Assad’s most recent film, Omar. “One of the most important Palestinian feature films ever, Omar is, to date, the deepest expose of the diabolical nature of the Israeli occupation and the inhuman situation imposed on Palestinians by the Jewish State. It also throws light on the tragic and depressing Palestinian struggle against a sophisticated, demonic enemy – an on-going battle that so far has led nowhere.”
I hope this film comes to Sapporo. If it does, I will definitely see it. Click on the link below to read the rest of Mr. Atzmon’s review.
