Paradise now - Kais Nashef, Ali Suliman, Lubna Azabal, Hany Abu-Assad

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

From the most unexpected place comes a bold new call for peace.

A gripping story about two Palestinian suicide bombers in the 24 hours leading up to their mission. Lifelong friends, Said and Khaled lead a normal life, working together in a garage and never discussing politics or religion. Having sometime ago volunteered to become suicide bombers they learn they have been chosen for the next mission and that it will begin in only 24 hours. As the carefully designed plans go awry, Netherlands-based Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad gives both the pro and anti arguments equal weight.
