The acclaimed director will be visiting the Angelika for the opening of MIRAL, an emotionally charged portrait of the lives of four women in the midst of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. This film marks Schnabel’s first narrative features since 2007’s impressive THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY, which earned the director an Academy Award nomination in addition to a slew of critics’ associations and film festival awards.

Academy Award nominee Julian Schnabel (THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY) directs Willem Defoe, Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave, and SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE sensation Fredia Pinto in this stirring, politically-minded drama. Inspired and written by the Palestinian-born, Western-based TV journalist Rula Jebreal, MIRAL chronicles the story of four women whose lives intertwine in the starkly human search for justice, hope and reconciliation amid a world overshadowed by conflict, rage and war.
