Movie Info

Fahad Mihyi, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Yulie Cohen, a sixth-generation Israeli, first met in August 1978, when Mihyi pointed a machine gun at the El Al flight attendant in a terrorist attack. Twenty-three years later, in an effort to help break the cycle of violence, Yulie considers writing a letter in support of Mihyi's parole, thus thrusting herself into the turbulent world of Middle East politics. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Jerusalem International Film Festival, and nominated for the Silver Wolf award at the Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival, My Terrorist asks hard questions about the meaning of forgiveness and hate, the inevitability of violence and, just possibly, about the chance of reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis. -- © Women Make Movies

A gripping and thoughtful documentary.

[Gerstel's] efforts are a testament to her own humanity and a ray of inspiration for some ultimate peace.

Jun 25, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4

An intelligent, deeply personal view of social and political issues that are longstanding and complex but not, [Gerstel] insists, intractable.
