Product description:

FIPRESCI Jury Award - The International Federation of Film Critics
Golden Leopard Award, Best Director - Locarno Film Festival
Bronze Leopard Award, Best Actor, Mohammed Bakri - Locarno


“…acted with fierce conviction” --The Village Voice
“…captures [war’s] harrowing complexities with unerring accuracy" --Toronto Int'l Film Festival
“…an effectively didactic thriller” --Philadelphia City Paper

Inspired by real events, documentary filmmaker Saverio Costanzo's feature debut is a minimalist psychological drama about a Palestinian family of seven suddenly confronted with a volatile situation in their home that in many ways reflects the larger ongoing conflict between Palestine and Israel.

Winner of a Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival, PRIVATE is convincingly shot in a documentary style with a hand-held camera and a quick pace. Director Costanzo has created a unique occasion for both Israeli and Palestinian actors to work together, and being an outsider himself, he has worked to maintain a neutral standpoint while dramatizing the conflict.
