OFFSIDE

Large_film_12728757_photo1
Ishaq Omar is a 13-year-old Palestinian boy who just wants to play a game of soccer with his friends. However, the Israeli separation wall built around his house turns a simple trip to the village square into a rather difficult endeavor. Will he make it on time? Offside takes the absurdity of the Israeli occupation and filters it through the apolitical perspective of a young boy. In Arabic.
