Note: This trailer has subtitles. The movie is originally from Israel and was filmed in a mix of Hebrew and Arabic.
Footnote is an Israeli film about a rivalry between two professors who happen to be father and son. Both are eccentric individuals who have dedicated their lives to their work. The father is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment and the son strives for accolades and recognition. Accidentally the father is told that he’s won the Israel Price, a prestigious scholarship award. The prize was meant for his son. After learning this the son is torn between telling the truth or letting his father accept the reward.
There is no US release date set for the film. It’s been around various film festivals like France’s Cannes Festival but again it doesn’t have a release date yet.
