Samaritan
Dir.: Julien Menanteau | 52 minutes

Samaritan

France 2018 | 52 minutes | Arabic, Hebrew, English | Hebrew, Arabic subtitles

Samaritans are a unique minority in the Middle East. With stand-alone religious status in Israel, the Samaritans are the world’s only holders of Israeli-Palestinian dual nationality. Located in the in the West Bank’s Mount Gerezim and in close proximity to the city of Nablus, today’s Samaritan community has only 780 members left, and is currently on the verge of extinction. Julien Menanteau’s gentle and perceptive camera succeeds in capturing a unique people and culture, a minority torn apart by its paradoxical identity, seeking to form a bridge between Israelis and Palestinians.
