Director: Tawfik Saleh, 1972, 107 minutes. Arabic with English Subtitles. Winner of Tanit d'Or at the 1972 Carthage Film Festival.
The Dupes, a stark and powerful black-and-white film, follows the path of three Palestinian refugees brought together by dispossession, despair and hope for a better future. Set in 1950's Iraq, the men, hidden in the steel tank of a truck, try to make their way across the border into Kuwait, the "promised land". Adapted from Ghassan Kanafani's novella, Men Under the Sun, The Dupes is also one of the first Arab films to address the Palestinian predicament.
"A classic masterpiece of Arab cinema." --The North African and Middle East Festival
