Beyond the Walls (1984)
Set in an Israeli maximum security prison, Beyond the Walls (Meachori Hasoragim) focusses on an ethnic "war" between rival prisoners. The opposing factions are headed by Israeli Arnon Zadok and Arab Muhamad Bakri. Insults beget violence, and before long the entire prison threatens to erupt in an orgy of bloodshed.

Beyond the Walls was nominated for a Best Foreign Picture Academy Award. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi … More
