Moderated by Jodi Rudoren of The New York Times
In the summer of 2014, three Jewish teenagers are kidnapped and murdered by Hamas militants. Israel is shocked, shaken and furious. Two days later, the burned body of a Palestinian teenager from eastern Jerusalem is found in a forest on the western outskirts of the city. In the ensuing days, an agent from the internal terror division of the Shin Bet investigates the murder, while the parents of the slain teenager begin their long and anguished journey toward justice and consolation. “Our Boys,” filmed in Israel, was based on the true events which led to the outbreak of war in Gaza. This riveting new series follows the investigation of Palestinian teenager Muhammad Abu Khdeir’s murder. It tells the story of all those involved, Jews and Arabs alike, whose lives were forever changed by these events.
Be among the first to see “Our Boys” at an advance screening of the first episode of this HBO – Keshet Studios co-production, followed by a discussion with creators, executive producers and writers/directors Hagai Levi, Joseph Cedar, Tawfik Abu Wael and Avi Nir and actor Shlomi Elkabetz. Jodi Rudoren, New York Times associate managing editor, moderates the conversation, drawing on her own experiences with the story as former Jerusalem bureau chief.
“Our Boys” will debut on HBO on August 12. It is subtitled in Hebrew and Arabic.
