Prisoners of War (AKA Hatufim) - 'Season 1' DVDs in Canada of the Israel Show Homeland Was Based On


3-disc set will have all 10 episodes in the original Hebrew, but with English subtitles

    The show that was adapted for North America into the Emmy-winning drama Homeland! Prisoners of War is not merely a gripping tension-filled award winning drama series from Israel - it is a must-see DVD for Canadian fans of Super Channel's similarly gripping Homeland, because it is the source from which the massive US hit is derived.

    Homeland's Nicholas Brody is really a composite of Prisoner of War's two IDF soldiers - Nimrod and Uri - returning home from 17 years of brutal captivity at the hands of the Palestine Liberation Organization. A third man returns in a coffin. Ten Season One episodes track their difficult re-introduction into family life in Israel. As one would suspect, there are signs that while they have returned physically to their homeland, the same can't be said for their intellectual and spiritual selves. Because the conflict affects almost everyone in Israel, Prisoners Of War has a more embedded feel than its descendant.

    Exclusive to this DVD set is an interview with series creator Gideon Raft, who explains to an audience at the 2013 San Francisco Jewish Film Festival how he translated Prisoners Of War into Homeland without losing the original's essential foreboding spirit. Winner of 9 Israeli Academy of Film & Television Awards.
Video Service Corp (VSC) has announced that the original 2009 show from Israel - which was the basis of the award-winning massive hit program Homeland (starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis) - is coming to DVD in Canada this fall with an October 8th release of Prisoners of War - Season 1. Priced at CA$29.98 SRP for a 3-disc set, the release will have the original Hebrew-language audio track with English subtitles. In addition to the 10 episodes, you'll also get a bonus Q & A with the Prisoners Of War creator (and Homeland Executive Producer) Gideon Raff.
