Palestinian film wins foreign film Golden Globe

A Palestinian film - "Paradise Now" - won the foreign language film Golden Globe on Monday. Director Hany Abu-Assad told the Beverly Hilton audience that he saw the award not only as recognition of the film, its cast and crew, "but also as a recognition that the Palestinians deserve their liberty and equality unconditionally." "Paradise Now" tackles the issue of Israeli-Palestinian violence in a story about two friends in the West Bank who are dispatched to carry out a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv.
