Tel Aviv on Fire

Directed by Sameh Zoabi
FRANCE/ISRAEL/BELGIUM | subtitled
97 minutes

In an irreverently comedic spin on Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Salam is a 30-year-old underachiever living in Jerusalem who lands a job as a production assistant on a popular Palestinian evening soap opera, Tel Aviv on Fire. Salam’s daily commute requires crossing the Ramallah checkpoint where he is interrogated by Assi, an Israeli military officer whose wife is a big fan of the show. Believing that Salam is a script writer, Assi sees his power as an opportunity to influence the plot. “A witty and warm-hearted look at a divided land.” Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter.
