The Green Prince

The Green Prince

Winner Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, 2014. Winner Best Documentary Ophir Awards (Israel’s Oscars), 2014.


This is a gripping account of terror and betrayal, based on the New York Times best-selling book, Son of Hamas, a memoir by Mosab Hassan Yousef.

Yousef, a Palestinian from Ramallah, grows up ready to fight Israel. He is arrested for smuggling guns at 17, interrogated by Israel’s security service, and sent to prison. While there he is turned, and he agrees to spy for Israel. For him, there is no greater shame. For his Shin Bet handler, there is no greater prize: operating the oldest son of a founding member of Hamas. The Green Prince is less about political struggle, though, than it is about the personal toll that these men’s moral choices have on them, and the relationship between “source” and “handler” – adversaries who cannot help but be emotionally tied to each other.
