2016 Houston Jewish Film Festival: Atomic Falafel
Exclusively for young adults in their 20s and 30s.
This hilarious satire has everything: intelligence and military personnel who sit around a sandbox planning war maneuvers while an assistant removes ever larger missiles from her purse; two teenaged girls, Israeli and Iranian, who spill their respective country’s valuable secrets on Facebook while trying to prevent a nuclear crisis; and the hottest falafel truck operator in the Middle East. She falls in love with the German inspector of nuclear plants, and he breaks out in hives when he comes anywhere near enriched uranium.
Directed by Dror Shaul, Germany/Israel/New Zealand, 2015, 93 min. English, Farsi, Hebrew with English subtitles. Houston Premiere. Comedy.
