Tel Aviv On Fire/Sameh Zoabi

Tel Aviv On Fire/Sameh Zoabi


In this comedic take on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Salam, an inexperienced and charming young Palestinian man, is interning on a popular soap opera produced in Ramallah. After “getting to know” an Israeli soldier and using his insights, he finds that his creative career is on the rise — but then, the soldier and the show’s financial backers disagree about how it should end, and Salam is caught in the middle. This enjoyable drama is a “witty and warm-hearted look at a divided land” (Hollywood Reporter).
