Borderlife, known in English as All the Rivers, was published in 2014. The international bestselling novel from Israeli author Dorit Rabinian tells the story of a Jewish woman and Palestinian man who meet in New York and fall in love.
Israel’s education ministry banned the book from high school reading lists because of its depiction of a cross-cultural romance. The decision sparked protests and the novel was later allowed in advanced literature classes.
Gadot will next be seen in Wonder Woman 1984, which opens in June 2020.
