NEW YORK, NY - JULY 3, 2014 - Adopt Films and Kino Lorber are proud to announce the DVD release of Bethlehem, the award-winning directorial debut of Yuval Adler about a young Palestinian informant who must divide his loyalty between his militant brother and a paternal Israeli Secret Service officer.
Now, this gripping thriller will be available July 15th on DVD with a SRP of $29.95. This DVD release follows its successful theatrical run in 25 markets, where it played to great acclaim.
Bethlehem was the Official Israeli Academy Award(R) submission for Best Foreign Language Film, won six awards of the Israeli Film Academy (including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay), and was an Official Selection of the Venice Film Festival (where it won the Fedeora Award - Best Film [Venice Days]), Telluride Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, and AFI Film Festival.
SYNOPSIS: Bethlehem tells the story of the complex relationship between Razi, an Israeli Secret Service officer, and his teenage Palestinian informant Sanfur. Sanfur is the younger brother of Ibrahim, a highly wanted Palestinian militant. Razi, determined to capture or assassinate Ibrahim, recruited Sanfur when he was just 15, investing all his energy in the kid and developing a very intimate, almost fatherly relationship with him. Sanfur, who has always lived in his brother's shadow, thrives on Razi's attention.
Now 17, he struggles to navigate between Razi's demands and his loyalty to his brother, living a double life and lying to both. When the Israeli Secret Service discovers how deeply involved Sanfur is in his brother's activities, Razi is accused of crossing professional lines and is ordered to sacrifice Sanfur in an upcoming attempt to assassinate Ibrahim. As preparations for the military strike are underway both Razi and Sanfur are forced to make choices that will irreversibly change their lives.
Co-written by Israeli director Yuval Adler, and Ali Waked, an Arab journalist who spent years in the West Bank, and based on extensive research, Bethlehem transcends perspectives, revealing the impossible situations and moral dilemmas associated with the dark and fascinating world of human intelligence.
