Jewish Awareness Group Film (Fri. 4 Mar, 2016 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

The 2014 film A Borrowed Identity is based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name written by Palestinian author Sayed Kashua. It follows a Palestinian teenager, Eyad, who gets a scholarship to an elite Israeli boarding school in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Although the liberal, left-leaning students and staff are supportive, he feels very distant from them and he can never forget that he is an outsider. However, with time he falls in love with a Jewish girl at the school (a relationship neither family would accept). In another story line, to fulfill a community service requirement, Eyad starts working with an Israeli heel-chair-bound teenager suffering from a debilitating neurological disease (another outsider). He begins to feel part of this family. This heartfelt film explores issues of identity in a very complicated country.
