Kaddish for a Friend

Growing up in a Palestinian refugee camp, 14-year-old Ali (Neil Belakhdar) learned to hate Jews at an early age. After he and his family escape to a new life in Berlin, Ali longs to be accepted by his fellow Arab youths in the public housing project. In a test to prove himself, Ali breaks into the apartment of his neighbor Alexander (Ryszard Ronczewski, Along Come Tourists), an elderly Russian Jewish war veteran. But Ali’s “friends” follow him into the apartment and vandalize it with abandon. When Alexander unexpectedly returns home, he recognizes only Ali and reports him to the police. To avoid being sentenced and deported, Ali is forced to seek out the trust and forgiveness of his enemy. http://washingtondcjcc.org/center-for-arts/film/WJFF/2011-film-pages/kaddish-for-a-friend.html
