Tel Aviv on Fire [תל אביב על האש]
Directed By: Sameh Zoabi
A fledgling writer for a popular soap opera gains success by collaborating with a brusque army commander in this comedy set against the backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film finds unexpected humor in the most precarious of situations while providing a timely reminder of the importance of listening.
