MUSSA Seattle premiere!
MUSSA  Seattle premiere!
2015, 60 min, Anat Goren, Israel (live action)

This documentary tells the story of 12-year-old Mussa, who won't speak for reasons that no one understands. He is an African refugee living in Tel Aviv, and for the past five years he's been bussed from his troubled neighborhood to an upscale private school. Mussa's Israeli classmates are his best friends, but he chooses to communicate with them only through gestures. In a time when he feels powerless, Mussa takes control by filming and documenting his own experience. This deeply relevant film will leave kids with plenty to talk about.

NOTES TO PARENTS: In Hebrew, Arabic, English, and Amharic, with English subtitles. This film about family and friendship tells the story of a child who understands four languages, but chooses not to speak any of them. This is his protective defense against almost insurmountable problems: hes a refugee with undocumented parents who face deportation. The film doesnt sugarcoat Mussas sadness, instead showing how a very real, and ultimately very resilient child copes with a distressing situation. "The School Bag" (which screens with Mussa) is based on a real terror attack on a school in Pakistan.
