Forever Pure

"Beitar Jerusalem F.C. is the most popular and controversial football team in Israel, the only club in the Premier League never to sign an Arab player. Mid-way through the 2012-13 season, a secretive transfer deal by the owner, Russian-Israeli oligarch Arcadi Gaydamak, brought two Muslim players from Chechnya. The deal inspired the most racist campaign in Israeli sport that sent the club spiralling out of control. One season in a life of this famed club is a story of Israeli society, personal identity, politics, money and a window into how racism is destroying a team and society from within"--Container.

But most of us didn't really want to see the people whose culture, anguish, and aspirations were reflected on our screens. "Arab Movie" brings us the stars and the songs, the convoluted plots, and that fleeting moment when we s [...]
