Beyond the Walls

Israel's acclaimed Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Film about contemporary relations between Arabs and Jews in an Israeli prison. This gritty, humanistic film draws a provocative parallel between a maximum security block and Israeli society. It presents the daring notion that an Arab and Jew can find friendship, and envisions a dignity and freedom that can be found through solidarity. International Critics Prize, 1984 Venice Film Festival; Best Picture, 1984 Israeli Academy Awards.
