Uri Barbash

Uri Barbash (Hebrew: אורי ברבש) is an Israeli film director.

He directed and co-wrote (with Eran Preis) Beyond the Walls (1984), which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.[1] The film is about an overcrowded prison where Jewish and Arab inmates set aside their prejudices and unite in a daring escape plan.

His film Echad Mishelanu (One of Us) (1989) is an Israeli drama about a military policeman sent to investigate his former comrades in an elite paratroop unit charged with the murder of an Arab who killed a member of the unit. The screenplay was written by the director's brother, Benny Barbash, a peace activist and playwright.[2]
