2016 Houston Jewish Film Festival: Fauda
Breaking TV viewership records in Israel, this mind-blowing action thriller has been compared to The Wire, Homeland, and The Hurt Locker. Fauda, a faced-paced Israeli political action drama brings the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to TV.
Treading a fine line between fiction and reality as it depicts the tensions of war and the frailty of human life, the show has gripped Israeli television audiences and has struck a chord with the Israeli public, both left and right. The first three episodes of the series will be screened.
Directed by Assaf Bernstein, Israel, 2015, 40 min. each. Hebrew with English subtitles. Houston Premiere. TV Series, Drama.
