A GRIPPING ESPIONAGE THRILLER!
Winner of the Audience Award, the Grand Prize at Frances annual Series Mania Festival and selected as one of eight international dramas to be screened as part of the Berlinale Special 2015, False Flag tells the story of five Israeli citizens who find themselves plunged into a gripping international espionage affair overnight. These ordinary people, going about their daily business, wake up one morning to discover that they are implicated in a ruthless kidnapping operation following the disappearance of the Iranian Defense Minister while on a secret visit to Moscow. News bulletins repeatedly flash their names and passport photos on screen, linking them to video footage from the kidnapping. Their attempts at denial, followed by laughter, indifference and anger are all in vain. The coverage turns their lives upside down and sweeps them up a storm of publicity and speculation. They are Israels new heroes of the day, the subjects of the nations curiosity mockery and admiration - all at the same time.
The show is loosely based on the story of the assassination in Dubai of a senior Hamas official.
Followed by discussion with writer Amit Cohen
