Love and revolution bring together two people who have pledged their lives to others in this romantic drama from director Ali Nassar. Jamal (Mahmoud Abu Jazi) is an Israeli Arab who is married to Abir (Nisreen Faour), a woman who has never shared his passionate, idealistic views on leftist politics or the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. One day, Jamal walks out on Abir and their children, and though she and her friends Gazi (Ali Suliman) and Buthina (Amal Kaiss) try to find him, their efforts prove futile. While searching for clues on Jamal's computer, Abir finds notes for a book he's been writing, and to her surprise she learns of his love for someone else. Leila (Raeda Adon) is a beautiful and tempestuous woman who shares Jamal's sympathies for the Communist party and is unhappily married to British expatriate Richard (David Milton Jones), and while Jamal is just one of her many lovers, he's been unable to forget her despite his commitment to Abir. As Abir learns more about Jamal's affair with Leila, Gazi uncovers evidence that Jamal has thrown in his lot with a group of radicals and has embraced a new and dangerous life as a terrorist. Adapted from a novel by Suhil Kiwan, Gehalim Lohashot (aka Whispering Embers) received its North American premiere at the 2008 Montreal World Film Festival.
