Israeli Film Series: Aka Nadia
Feb 11 @ 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm

An Israeli woman living under false pretenses is haunted by her past in A.K.A. NADIA, a powerful meditation on the personal and political nature of identity.

Born into a Palestinian family, the naïve and love-struck Nadia severs ties to her Jerusalem home life, and follows a PLO activist (Ali Suliman) to London where they secretly marry. When her husband is arrested, Nadia finds herself alone and in exile, with no option of returning to Israel where she is viewed as a terrorist. Flash forward twenty years, Nadia has forged a new identity as Maya, an Israeli Jew who by all appearances enjoys a successful life as a choreographer, devoted mother, and wife to a high-ranking Ministry of Justice official (Oded Leopold). But the resurfacing of a figure from her past threatens to unravel both her family and her own sense of self.
