Overview

Salam works as an intern on the popular Palestinian soap opera Tel Aviv on Fire. Every day Salam must pass through an arduous Israeli checkpoint to reach the television studios. He meets the check point chief, Assi, whose wife is a huge fan of the show. In order to please her, Assi puts pressure on Salam to change the story of the show.

Review

This black comedy is a commentary on the Israeli?Palestinian conflict. The film tells the story of Salam, a Jerusalem resident who works as a Hebrew language consultant for a soap opera called Tel Aviv on Fire. In order to commute to his job, Salem must cross the border every day. He lies to Assi, the commander of the check point, that he’s the show’s scriptwriter. Set against the backdrop of the deadlock in the Middle East, this film criticizes the images required for success in show business, and the ironies on the television set. [JANG Byungwon]
