AJAMI



Co-directed by a Palestinian and an Israeli, the powerful crime drama Ajami is set on the streets of Jaffa's Ajami neighborhood, a melting pot of cultures and conflicting views among Jews, Muslims and Christians, and told through the eyes of a cross-section of the city's inhabitants: a young Israeli (Shahir Kabaha), a Palestinian refugee (Ibrahim Frege), a Jewish police detective (Eran Naim) and an affluent Palestinian (Scandar Copti). As their stories intersect - and the film's narrative shifts back and forth in time - we witness a dramatic collision of worlds and the tragic consequences that can occur when enemies live as neighbors.
