Under The Same Sun (2014) Trailer
Trailer for Under the Same Sun.
As the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks gear up again, what better time for a savvy, surprising drama like "Under The Same Sun"? It follows two businessmen – one Palestinian and one Israeli – as they struggle to build a joint business venture, a new solar energy firm serving the needs of Palestinians in the West Bank. And who better to direct it than Sameh Zoabi ("Man Without A Cell Phone", PSIFF 2012), a Palestinian citizen of Israel, whose multicultural studies and work allowed him to develop unique international perspectives as a writer-director.
Set in the near future – a future where old cultural hostilities are still an obstacle at every level, but where new technologies also offer fresh hope – Under the Same Sun seeks to humanize the “other” for both Israeli and Palestinian audiences, and aims to dispel the belief held by many that there is no partner on the other side.
