Director: Thierry Binisti (99 minutes, France/Canada/Israel, 2011) / Hebrew, Arabic, French with English subtitles / Drama
A secret online friendship between Tal, an Israeli-French teenage girl and Naim, a 20 year old Palestinian boy develops after he discovers her letter of peace written after she experiences a terror attack in a bottle washed up on a Gaza beach. This optimistic feature, based on the young adult novel by Valérie Zenatti, avoids sentimentality and easy answers as the teens exchange emails while political and family tensions mount.
