Sundance Institute, Cohen Media Group and the Muslim Public Affairs Council present a screening and reception for The Attack

Amin Jaafari is an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society.  He has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends.  But his picture perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem, who also died in the explosion, was responsible.  Convinced of her innocence, Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the truth. Once there, he finds himself in ever more dangerous places and situations.  Determined, he presses on seeking answers to questions he never thought he would be asking. (Rated: R / Run time:102 minutes)
