MAYOR follows Musa Hadid, the 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?
We recommend watching the film before the event, and coming to the Q&A with questions for Mr. Osit. Because of COVID-19, many smaller theaters are streaming his film online. Tickets can be purchased from the theater of your choice at this link: http://www.mayorfilm.com/screenings
