Show trailer
At work with the mayor of Ramallah in a beautiful and topical film, which provides a fresh look at Palestine and what it means to run a society.

It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. For the mayor of Ramallah, the Christian Musa Hadid, the job is about creating stability and ensuring that society's basic institutions work, while politics is only secondary. And he already has more than enough on his plate, as no two days are the same in the Palestinian de facto capital. The eternal conflict and the equally eternal peace negotiations are important, but so are the dream of increased tourism and sidewalks without potholes. 'Mayor' gives us full access to the likeable and thoughtful Hadid during his second term on the job, and to his own thoughts on the present and possible future of his country. However, at the end of the day and the many chores, Hadid still has an ultimate mission: to end the occupation of his land. With 'Mayor', David Osit has created a beautiful and realistic film, which provides a fresh look at both Palestine and what it takes to run a society.
