Directed by Nitzan Ofir

Israel 2014 60 mins.

Almost Friends is a touching documentary about two Israeli girls—an Arab and a Jew—who live only 67 kilometers apart but in wildly different circumstances. Participating in an online program that fosters educational exchange and friendship, the two eventually get to meet face-to-face, and the result is a profoundly moving experience for them, their families, and the audiences who see this touching film. Ofir’s film is a poignant reminder of the hope that exists behind the headlines. In Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles.
