Playing festivals in both Venice and Toronto last year, Israel's selection for the Oscars and the winner of Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor and more from the Israeli Film Academy, "Bethlehem" has been building considerable buzz. And now you'll get a chance to see for yourself the potent drama behind the thriller as it heads to a theatre near you.

Starring Shadi Mar’I, Tsahi Halevy, Hitham Omari and Tarek Copti, and directed by Yuval Adler, the film tells the story of the tricky and troubled relationship between an Israeli Secret Service officer and his teenage Palestinian informant that grows even more morally conflicted when the young man learns his employers are plotting to assassinate his radical brother. It's knotty drama filled with crackling tension too, and below we have an exclusive clip from the pretty terrific raid sequence in the film, where Israeli forces track down a target in a neighbourhood home.

"Bethlehem" opens on March 7th. Watch below.
