Hany Abu-Assad’s acclaimed film OMAR is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and already won this year’s Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. The central figure in a Romeo & Juliet-esque West Bank tale, Omar is accustomed to dodging surveillance when crossing the separation wall to visit his secret love Nadia. After the sensitive young baker 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 Tarek, Nadia’s militant brother. But it’s soon evident that everything he does is for his love of Nadia.
