The Woodstock Theatre presents the 12th Annual Woodstock International Film Festival, featuring five Academy Award Nominated Best Foreign Films. The series continues with Omar on Monday, September 22 at 4:45 & 7:00 p.m.
Omar (Adam Bakri) is a Palestinian baker who routinely climbs over the separation wall to meet up with his girl Nadja (Leem Lubany). By night, he's either a freedom fighter or a terrorist -- you decide -- ready to risk his life to strike at the Israeli military with his childhood friends Tarek (Eyad Hourani) and Amjad (Samer Bisharat). Arrested after the killing of an Israeli soldier and tricked into an admission of guilt by association, he agrees to work as an informant. So begins a dangerous game-is he playing his Israeli handler (Waleed F. Zuaiter) or will he really betray his cause? And who can he trust on either side?
This series runs through Tuesday, September 23 and will also feature The Missing Picture. Tickets for all five films may be purchased in advance for $30. Single tickets for each feature are $7.50.
