Omar Palestine, Feature Film, 2013, 96 min Nominated for a 2014 Academy Award Winner of “Un Certain Regard Prize” at the Cannes Film Festival 2013 Omar is accustomed to dodging surveillance bullets to cross the separation wall to visit his secret love, Nadia. But occupied Palestine knows neither simple love nor clear-cut war. On the other side of the wall, the sensitive young baker Omar becomes a freedom fighter who must face painful choices about his life. When Omar is captured after a deadly act of resistance, he falls into a cat-and-mouse game with the military police. Suspicion and betrayal jeopardize his longtime trust with accomplices and childhood friends Amjad and particularly Tarek, who is Nadia’s militant brother. Omar’s feelings quickly become as torn apart as the landscape, and it’s soon evident that everything he does is for hislove of Nadia. Subtitled Directed by Hany Abu-Assad Colorado Premiere
