The Israeli Series “The Forgotten” On My CANAL I24NEWS
The spectator follows the daily life of young people on the margins of society who try to get by
The 9 episodes of the successful Israeli series “The Forgotten” by Tawfik Abu-Wael with actress Rona-Lee Shim’on are now broadcast on POLAR + available with my CANAL in France. The story chronicles the life of a group of young boys on the margins of society, who spend their time in a school for at-risk youth. When a young girl is raped, they immediately become suspects and their already unbalanced lives are turned upside down…
In this veritable social drama, the viewer thus follows the daily life of these young people who try to get by despite the hostile family environment in which they evolve.
Tawfik Abu-Wael had signed in 2019 one of the best Israeli series with “Our Boys”, based on the murder of young Palestinian Mohammad Abou Khdeir after the kidnapping and murder of three young Israelis in 2014 which had started the war with Gaza.
“Our Boys” had aroused many controversies, especially in Israel for being too “focused” on the investigation around Mohammad, not relating the kidnapping of the three Israeli teenagers. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had notably called for a boycott of the series but also Reshet, its broadcast channel.
Israeli series have been winning the international scene for several years and are imposing themselves brilliantly. Season 4 of Fauda will notably be available on Netflix from January 2023
