The Levantine Cultural Center will present the feature film The Other Son Wed., Feb. 20th, 7:30 pm at the Laemmle Music Hall, followed by a film panel. The Other Son is an unusually provocative "switched at birth" tale that captures the essence of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. French director Lorraine Levy presides over an excellent international cast (the film is in Arabic, Hebrew, French and English with subtitles) that effectively conveys all the emotion wrought from the pain and joys of family drama.
