The Hyderabad Film Club is organising an Israeli Film Festival, from 25th to 28 July, at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. The screenings include three award winning films and four documentaries. Today, the final day, Two States Of Minds, an Israeli documentary directed by Shira Richter, will be the first film to be screened, at 6:30pm.
Two actresses, an Israeli from Tel Aviv and a Palestinian from Ramallah are invited to compete in a jeep rally in Morocco as 'The Peace Team'. With no experience but plenty of enthusiasm, they agree, imagining a Club-Med type vacation. What a surprise. A roller coaster of despair, humor, courage and politics awaits them.
The two women, of two cultures and two personalities, are cooped up in one jeep for 12 scorching days and freezing nights in the unforgiving Sahara Desert. They must cooperate if they are to survive this 'vacation'.
The two women are in real life, an Israeli and a Palestinian - Naomi lives in Tel Aviv and Achsan lives in Ramallah. They met while working on a play about co-existence. Naomi, a peace activist, has been working with Palestinians for years, and Achsan wanted to know for once and for all who this enemy really is.
