From 'Hatufim' to 'Homeland'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Hatufim (Prisoners of War) is an Israeli TV series which tells the story of how three Israeli soldiers struggle to integrate back into society after 17 years in terrorist captivity. When it was screened on Israeli TV, it was the highest rating show of the year, with its American spinoff, Homeland, achieving equal popularity and several Emmy awards. This session will explore the contrast between the two shows, with a specific focus on what this difference can teach us about Israeli society.
