Based on the NYTimes bestseller ‘Son of Hamas’, this real life thriller tells the story of one of Israel’s prized intelligence sources, recruited to spy on his own people for over a decade. Focusing on the complex relationship with his handler, this is a gripping account of terror, betrayal, unthinkable choices - and friendship that defies all boundaries.

“A captivating and emotional story…THE GREEN PRINCE combines elaborately staged cinematic re-enactments, an absorbing plotline, full of twists and turns, and a profoundly sensitive portrait of the individuals at the centre of the story…For all of its political intrigue, it’s ultimately about the close bond between two men."

"As gripping as any high concept Hollywood thriller and as psychologically knotty as Greek tragedy"

“The Green Prince” is a timely look at how one man broke the cycle of violence born of blind allegiance by seeking out the facts and coming up with his own solutions."

“A documentary so gripping, it also qualifies as a thriller in its own right.”
