Israeli Movie Night in Montreal: Mussa
Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at 7:00 PM
Segal Centre Cinema Space, 5170 Chemin de la Côte-Ste-Catherine
Refugees from Darfur, Mussa and his parents have been living in Tel Aviv’s worst neighborhood for six years. At twelve years old, Mussa doesn’t speak. In a strange stroke of policy, he is bussed to an elite private school every day. Leaving behind addicts and prostitutes each morning, he silently navigates an upscale world, and forges a bond with a teacher who is also a refugee. When a series of unexpected crises hit, Mussa’s precarious place between two disparate worlds is heartbreakingly revealed.
