The film, Miral by eminent American filmmaker Julian Schnabel, will be filmed entirely here and the shooting is scheduled to start next month immediately after the Passover holidays.

The screenplay has been adopted by Schnabel, of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly fame, from a book by Palestinian-Italian writer Rula Jebreal who is said to have helped finalise the script.
