NEW YORK CITY PREMIERE The Devil’s Drivers has the white-knuckle suspense of a 1970s car-chase thriller, while also immersing us in life in the occupied territory of Palestine’s West Bank. Filmed over eight years, the drivers Hamouda and his cousin Ismail smuggle Palestinian workers by car into Israel where labor is in high demand. If caught by Israeli soldiers, everyone in the car will go to jail. But this gamble remains their best hope to support their families. – Thom Powers
