Filmpresentation: „The Green Prince“
Mosab Hassan Yousef is the son of the Hamas leader and co-founder Hassan Yousef. His early anti-Israeli education meant that Mosab was also willing to go to war against the state his father was fighting. But he was caught smuggling arms when he was seventeen and arrested by the intelligence service Shin Bet. In prison he realized for the first time how brutal and inhumane the Hamas attacks were. He was persuaded to change sides and to spy on his family and ex-organization for the secret police with a view to preventing suicide attacks.
The documentary film by Nadav Schirman is based on the true story written by Yousef in his memoirs Son of Hamas after escaping to the USA. It won the World Cinema Documentary category at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
