The 90 Minute War at Boston Jewish Film Festival

Saturday, November 11, 2017 9:15pm

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is about to be resolved….by a soccer match. In this politically-incorrect, satirical mockumentary, it’s winner-take-all to remain in the Holy Land. As managers Moshe Ivgy (My Lovely Sister) and Norman Issa (Arab Labor) prepare for the highest-stakes game of their careers, nothing is easy — from finding a stadium to agreeing on a referee. The trials that ensue take a fresh, and hilarious, lens to the conflict.
