Tel Aviv on Fire

Saturday, January 18, 7:30 pm, Admission $15

Located at Congregation B’nai Shalom, 117 E Main St, Westborough, MA 01581

Director: Sameh Zoabi I Israel / Luxembourg / Belgium / France I 2018 I 100 minutes I Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles

Brimming with humor, satire, and multiple plot lines, Tel Aviv on Fire follows Salam, a winsome slacker, who gets his big break as a writer on a popular Palestinian soap opera. His daily commute from Jerusalem to the Ramallah set, through the Israeli checkpoint, leads to regular encounters with Assi, the IDF officer in charge. In order to gain his favor, Salam allows him to make storyline changes. Torn between the demands of the officer and the show’s Arab financial backers, Salam devises a final masterstroke.

Nominated for 4 Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Film, 2019.

“Sharp-eyed and funny.” A.O. Scott, New York Times
