Mosab Hassan Yousef, Gonen Ben Yitzhak, Sheikh Hassan Yousef

The real story of Mosab Hassan Yousef, elder son of sheik Hassan Yousef, one of the Hamas founding members, who was recruited by Shin Bet (the Israeli national security agency) and, with the code name “Green Prince” for over ten years spied upon the Hamas elite. Based on Mossad Hassan Yousef’s best-selling autobiography, Son of Hamas, the film brings us into a complex world made of fear, betrayal, manipulation and impossible choices. It is a suspense-ridden, emotionally compelling tale, a very timely documentary thriller on the world of terrorism and espionage in the Middle East. It won the Best Documentary World Cinema Spectators Prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, from the Oscar-winning producers of Man on Wire, Searching For Sugar Man and One Day In September.
