The martyrs

The martyrs is a film which sheds light on the Palestinian issue of suicide bombers and martyrs but the film is meant to be set in the US.

Castro has been inspired here by the Oscar winning film Paradise Now, which deals with two Palestinian men who are preparing a suicide attack on Israel. Like Paradise NowThe martyrs will air the complicated issue that good and evil exist in all corners of the earth: that the issue is a complex one, where there is seldom only a black and white side.

Paradise Now won the Golden Globe Award in 2005 for best foreign film and was even nominated for an Oscar in the same category.
