Carmel Jewish Film Festival - Closing Night
Venue: Monterey Institute of International Studies, McCone Building, Monterey
Reception: 6:30 pm
Film: 7:30 pm
Panel Discussion: 9:15 pm

Amin Jaafari, an ethnically Palestinian but non-religious surgeon who lives and works in Tel Aviv, receives an award for his outstanding work -- the first Arab to be so honored -- the day before an explosion at a cafe puts him to work saving lives. It's after that a personal bombshell hits him: One of the victims is his wife, Siham, and her injuries are consistent with having detonated a suicide bomb. He cannot believe this is possible and returns to his hometown of Nablus to find answers.

THE ATTACK is a Palestinian-Israeli collaboration about a Tel Aviv suicide bombing, with a Lebanese director (Zaid Doueiri). It does not take sides, although that view is hardly unanimous. The film was banned by the Arab Council and in Lebanon, where it is against the law to film in Israel.

Three Audience Colcoa Awards/Los Angeles; two awards, San Sebastian Film Festival; nominated for Golden Seashell Award.

"The film tries to figure out how this could happen, and while it does provide some insight into the minds of the attackers, it is also smart enough to know that we may never fully understand this madness."
