‘I want to see what you look like’ as she visits Israeli prison
As she was returning to the US, a new film about a Palestinian prisoner who was tortured in Israel came to the attention of the Hollywood elite.
She met him, met her father and his family, and then they met in prison.
But she also knew something of the story of the Israeli prisoners who came to Hollywood and became part of a long history of mistreatment of Palestinians in America.
“I have been an American citizen for 25 years, and I’ve been treated with great respect,” she told The Jerusalem Times.
“I want this to be a way of connecting with my Palestinian brothers and sisters.
We’re not. “
In America, we have always been told we’re the world’s most racist country.
But that is not the reality.
We’ve got to stop treating each other as if we’re not human beings.
A New Hope, by Shlomo Shlom, is the story, as told by a former prisoner who came back to the United States and is now in prison, of the two American actors who played prisoners in the Israeli jail.
It was filmed over the past few years in the American prison where Shlomi lives, in Brooklyn, New York, and is set to premiere in January.
The film is part of the United Nations’ efforts to address the violence of the occupation.
“I’m proud of Shloms work,” Shlome told The Times.
“”I was honored to be chosen by a major film studio.
I’ve never been in trouble in America, and it is a beautiful country, and the film makes a powerful statement.
“It is an emotional, powerful film about the trauma of the imprisonment of two American men, Shloma and Yigal, and also about the growing number of people of color who have become activists and activists on behalf of Palestinians.
It is a film about two young American women who have fought to have justice for Palestinian prisoners, and have been the subject of international attention.
“The two of us were like, ‘Why not?’ “
She came to us and said she wanted to be an actress, and she was so passionate about it,” Shylome said.
“The two of us were like, ‘Why not?’
And so we made a movie together, and for the last year, we’ve been doing it.
We had no money, and we were doing it for free, and at the end of the year we found out, ‘This is really good.
We should start a foundation.’
And that’s when the story took off.”
Shlom has been working on the film since it was originally submitted in 2015.
She began filming when she was 16, after attending the Israeli prison in the West Bank.
“My family was like, this is a great story,” she recalled.
“So I was like my parents were, and they said, ‘What are you doing?
What are you going to be doing in the future?’
And I was a little bit surprised.
I was just like, I want to do something.
I really wanted to do this.”
Sholom and her family are now in their 60s and still living in Brooklyn.
She was not in prison at the time the film was made, but is now.
Sholom, who now works as a producer on movies, was not able to visit her father for his funeral, but she did meet her father, Yagan, who was released from Israeli prison at age 15.
Shlomic and Yaggi were in jail together.
“We didn’t know what was going to happen with the funeral,” Sholoms mother, Elisabeth, told The Hollywood Reporter.
“We knew he was going, but we didn’t really know how he was feeling.
And then we got the news that he had died, and Yaghi was gone.
We were all like, OK, this could be a little different.
And we started filming.
And it really helped me feel a sense of peace and a sense that maybe I was going through something really tough.
I think I just felt like it was important for me to do it.”
Shalom, Yag, and their younger brother, Yosef, are the only American citizens in Israeli prison, and are the focus of the film.
They were not allowed to see their mother.
The younger brothers were sent to live with their grandmother.
“There’s not much else to do except to work and be a parent, and not get out of bed and go and do my job, which is to make films,” Shalom said.
The boys worked for years on the production of the documentary.
It took four years to make it.
Shalomi said that while she has never
