Storyline

Citizen Nawi documents the tumultuous life of one of the most fascinating men in the Israeli left - Ezra Nawi - a plumber by trade and a political activist who fights for Palestinians' rights. Simultaneously, Nawi engages in a personal battle for his partner Fuad, a Palestinian from Ramallah and an illegal resident chased by law enforcement officials. Tracking the two intertwined parts of Nawi's life, the film uncovers a deep seated racism and homophobia that is common everywhere. Written by Esty Alsthul

One man's fight against all odds to change the peoples views Palestinians and gays.
16 February 2008 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

It's a little gem. Full of heart. It takes you into the life of Ezra Nawi. A complex gay man who tries to fight racism and homophobia in a country which is preoccupied with war and self preservation. Ezra is a great character and easy to fall in love with. Sometimes it feel like the whole world is against him even his mother. The best way to describe the film is "if you want to change the world, change yourself. It is sad that very few people will get to see this film. It really has a lot to offer the to the world of docs. This is the second film I have seen by the director Nissim Mossek the first one was shalom abu bassen which is also a wonderful film about a street in east Jerusalem where both Israeli's and Arabs live side by side. Mr. Mossek filmed that movie over a period of 12 years.
