From the Academy Award Winning Producers of Man on Wire, Searching for Sugar Man and One Day in September, this critically acclaimed documentary retraces the details of an unprecedented partnership that developed between sworn enemies. Set against the chaotic backdrop of recent events in the Middle East, this film recounts the true story of the son of a Hamas leader who emerged as one of Israel’s prized informants, and the Shin Bet agent who risked his career to protect him. Based on Mosab Hassan Yousef’s bestselling memoir Son of Hamas, The Green Prince exposes a complex world of terror, betrayal, and impossible choices. Through exclusive first-hand testimony, dramatic action sequences, and rare archival footage, decades of secrets come to light in this unf   linching exploration of a profound spiritual transformation and the transcendent bonds of friendship. In the style of a tense psychological thriller, The Green Prince will challenge much of what you know about the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
