This inspired hybrid of documentary and fiction follows Jabir, who runs a mobile cinema from his old truck throughout the West Bank while his wife works to bring emergency medical care to Palestinians. When Jabir is invited by a spirited schoolteacher to make a screening in the old city of Jerusalem, he becomes obsessed with the idea of this pilgrimage and begins to investigate the possibilities.Written by
Everyday life in the west bank. No violence. The queues at the checkpoint, the lack of jobs, the occasional shouting with the spouse, the friendships. More like a reality TV show following the everyday life of a citizen crossing chasms between two cultures, religions, languages, and physical barriers. Also noted that the greatest percentage of votes in this website were in the lowest category available ("1"). I would argue that those voters were politically motivated, and did not consider the overall motion picture quality, which was decent and engaging and not boring. Because there are considerable outdoor scenes that involve military equipment, curious wether the Israelis provided some support for this production.
