Paradise Now is a documentary film, suitable for senior secondary students, that deals with one of the most contentious of contemporary issues – suicide bombers – and explores their motivations, the logistics behind their missions and how their attacks are coordinated and organised. Two young Palestinian childhood friends are recruited to carry out a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, record a farewell video and spend the last night with their families. In Paradise Now, Khaled and Said have to face their destiny, choices, dilemmas and convictions.
Paradise Now, the film and study guide will be of interest to Years 11–12 students of:
- Religious Studies
- Media Studies
* Paradise Now is rated 15+ but contains strong suggestions of violence and could provoke intense class discussions. Teachers should view the film themselves before deciding how to use it with students.
