SHADYA with I'M JUST 18: 2007 MAINE JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL
Monday March 19, 2007
The Movies on Exchange
5:30 pm

SHADYA
Directed by Roy Westler
Israel, 2005, 52 min., Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles

Seventeen-year-old Shadya Zoabi is a feisty Arab-Israeli World Karate Champion who competes for the Israeli national team. Shadya's father supports her karate ambitions; however, her older brothers consider her a disgrace to the family. As she prepares for her wedding, Shadya struggles with how to stay true to her interests and ideals in the face of mounting pressure to become a traditional wife and mother. Shadya's story poignantly illustrates the challenges of coping with competing identities--Palestinian/Israeli citizen and Muslim woman/karate champ.
