Description

TEL AVIV ON FIRE

A middle-aged slacker fails upwards in his job on the set of a popular Palestinian soap opera only to end up fielding script notes from a disgruntled Israeli military officer, in this satire from writer-director Sameh Zoabi.

In this hilarious satirical comedy, Salam (Kais Nashif, Paradise Now), a charming 30-year-old Palestinian living in Jerusalem, works as a trainee on the Palestinian popular soap opera "Tel Aviv on Fire", produced in Ramallah. Salam’s daily commute from the Ramallah set through the Israeli checkpoint leads to regular encounters with the IDF officer in charge (Yaniv Biton, Mossad 101), whose wife is a big fan of the soap opera. When the officer demands Salam change the show’s story line to make his wife happy, Salam struggles with concocting plot twists to suit viewers on both sides. (Israel, 2019, 100 Mins, Arabic & Hebrew | Dir. Sameh Zoabi)
