"The Attack" is banned in much of Arab world but plays in Israel

Lebanese filmmaker Ziad Doueiri's latest film The Attack, tells the story of an Arab Israeli doctor who learns that his wife is the suicide bomber behind an attack which kills 17 people, many of whom are children. The film follows the doctor, Amin Jaafari, as he tries to understand why his wife would commit such an act. The film has been banned across the Arab world but opened earlier this month in Israel. Filmmaker Ziad Doueiri and Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik join us to discuss the film. (Photo: AP Images).
