Phoenix Cinema Screening: SYRIAN PATIENT

The untold story of heroism under dire circumstances. As the war in
Syria wages on, wounded soldiers and civilians are secretly brought
into Israel to be cared for. For the first time, this film takes a look at the
complex and moving relationships forged between former enemies as
patients and doctors bond in a healing process. We follow the stories
of a number of Syrians who wake up in an Israeli hospital. Where they
would have once felt like they are in enemy-territory, they now
recognize the humanity and hope possible. The film shows the
humanity between people, Syrians and Israelis from a different
perspective: former enemies become partners in the struggle for life.
