MAYOR follows Musa Hadid, the Christian mayor of Ramallah, during his second term in office. His immediate goals: repave the sidewalks, attract more tourism, and plan the city’s Christmas celebrations. His ultimate mission: to end the occupation of Palestine.
Rich with detailed observation and humor, MAYOR offers a portrait of dignity amidst the madness and absurdity of endless occupation while posing a question: how do you run a city when you don’t have a country?
"OUTSTANDING. Made with irony, subtlety, and style."
"ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF 2020. The best new film about the Israel-Palestinian conflict."
EXTRAORDINARY. Infuriating and heartbreaking.
