Gal Gadot, Keshet Partner on film-adaptation of novel banned in Israeli schools

Gal Gadot is partnering with Keshet International on a film adaptation of a novel banned from school reading lists by the Israeli government because of its depiction of an Israeli-Palestinian romance. The star, along with her husband, Jaron Varsano, will be co-producing the movie, with Keshet Studios through Pilot Wave, which is the production company the couple founded together. This project is based on the controversial 2014 Hebrew novel Borderlife by Israeli author Dorit Rabinyan.

The book was also published in English, by Random House as All the Rivers. The novel depicts the story of an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man who meet in New York and fall in love. They hide their romance from their friends and family as they struggle to come to terms with their relationship. The book set off a huge controversy in Israel when right-wing Education Minister, Naftali Bennett banned it from mandatory school reading lists in Israel in 2015. Ironically, the ban gave the book a major selling boost in the country.
