Over the objections of the Israeli government and the American Jewish Committee, the United Nations yesterday hosted the American premiere of a movie sure to generate further controversy with its depiction of Israel’s 1948 founding.
The Oscar-nominated director Julian Schnabel is preparing to shoot “Miral” on location in Israel and the Palestinian territories, Variety reports. The film, starring the Palestinian actress Hiam Abbas, is to be based on Rula Jebreal’s book about Hind Husseini — the founder of Jerusalem’s Dar Al-Tifl orphanage.
