This real life thriller tells the story of one of Israel’s prized intelligence sources, the son of a top Hamas leader. Under the code name “The Green Prince”, he is recruited to spy on his own people for over a decade. Focusing on his complex relationship with his handler, this is a gripping account of terror, betrayal, impossible choices - and of a friendship that defies all boundaries.
Set against a backdrop of recent events in the Middle East, Nadav Schirman’s THE GREEN PRINCE is a multi layered psychological thriller that will challenge people's preconceptions of the on-going conflict in the region. Combining exclusive first person testimony, dramatic action sequences and never-before-seen archive footage, this is a powerful cinematic experience - a spy thriller that will have audiences on the edge of their seats. The film was produced by Schirman along with two-time Oscar winner Simon Chinn (“Man on Wire" and "Searching for Sugar Man”) and Oscar winner John Battsek (“One Day in September”, "The Tillman Story").
