The film received Ophirs from the Israeli Academy of Film and Television on Sept. 28 for best feature film, best director, best actor, best supporting actor, best editing and best casting.
“The Gatekeepers,” featuring interviews with Israel’s former intelligence chiefs, won the Ophir for best documentary.
“Bethlehem,” co-written and co-directed by Yuval Adler and Ali Waked, describes the relationship between an Israeli Shin Ben security service agent and a teenage Palestinian informant, who also is the younger brother of the head of the Al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades in Bethlehem. — jta
