2020. 89 m. David Osit. Film Movement. US/UK. English/Arabic with English subtitles. NR.
Mayor is a real-life political saga that 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 a surprising amount of 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?
Mayor is a part of year-round JBFC series Global Watch: Crisis & Social Action.
