Heart of Jenin (Das Herz von Jenin)

After Ahmed Khatib, a twelve-year-old Palestinian boy, was accidentally shot and killed by an Israeli soldier, his parents decided to donate as many of his organs as possible to Israeli children in need, including an Orthodox Jew, a Bedouin, and a Druze.

This deeply moving documentary charts the emotional journey Ahmed's parents take, and the Israeli children who are alive today because of their extraordinary gift.

In Arabic, Hebrew, and English with English subtitles.
