About the Film:
MAYOR 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 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?
This presentation is a collaboration with the One Take Film Festival (OTFF).
Bonus: The film rental comes with a conversation between director David Osit (shout-out to the University of Rochester), and Hoops Dream filmmaker (and OTFF award-winner) Steve James.
