The Green Prince
When the Israelis jailed Mosab Hassan Yousef for arms possession, Shin Bet handler Gonen Ben Yitzhak recruited him as an informant—getting Mosab to betray his father, one of the founders of Hamas. What sounds like fiction is, in fact, the real-life story of Mosab and Gonen’s deep friendship, which had evolved during the years Mosab worked as the Shin Bet’s most valued operative. Heartbreaking and inconceivable, the documentary slices through politics to reveal what can be achieved when people replace hate with compassion. Music Box Films.
