My Dearest Enemy
Directed by Tzipi Trope
Israel | 100 minutes | 2019
Hebrew with English subtitles
This epic drama tells the story of a 25-year friendship between two women — Alice, a Palestinian-Israeli professor, and Maya, a Jewish-Israeli artist. The two women met in Jerusalem as young girls but grew up taking vastly different paths. Drawn to each other by their shared love for poetry, they develop a deep bond that grows into an impossible friendship that is ultimately put to the test by their communities’ ever-growing conflicts. My Dearest Enemy is a story of love, betrayal, shattered dreams, and courage — but above all, it is a story about the hope and promise of enduring friendship.
