Come see Cup Final as part of La Cinémathèque’s largest series ever!

During the 1982 Lebanon War, Israeli soldier Cohen is captured by the Palestine Liberation Organization. Cohen must fend for himself as the soldiers escort him to Beirut as a POW. But the trip creates an unlikely bond between Cohen and one of his captors, Ziad.

For this screening we are so excited to announce a guest lecturer, Dr. Samuel Peleg, political science professor and researcher at Rutgers University.  Click here learn more about Dr. Peleg and his expertise!
