Get a behind-the-scenes look at HBO’s hit series, Our Boys, with Shuki Ben-Naim, the series’ screenwriter. Through the use of clips, audience members will be transported inside the show for a rare opportunity to see how the series was created and filmed. Q&A session to follow.
Filmed in Israel, Our Boys is based on the true events which led to the outbreak of war in Gaza. In the summer of 2014, three Jewish teenagers are kidnapped and murdered by Hamas militants. Israel is shocked, shaken and furious. Two days later, the burned body of a Palestinian teenager from eastern Jerusalem is found in a forest on the western outskirts of the city. In the ensuing days, an agent from the internal terror division of the Shin Bet investigates the murder, while the parents of the slain teenager begin their long and anguished journey toward justice and consolation. The series follows the investigation of Mohammed Abu Khdeir’s murder, and tells the story of all those involved, Jews and Arabs alike, whose lives were forever changed by these events.
Shuki Ben-Naim is a Murray Galinson San Diego Israel Initiative Visiting Scholar. He is teaching screenwriting at San Diego State University.
