(Please supply your kids with money for dinner; film tickets will be provided by Peretz.)
Tel Aviv on Fire. This critically acclaimed film explores the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a satirical comedy. When Salam, a hapless young Palestinian man with no experience in the television business, begins work on a soap opera filmed in Ramallah, his daily commute takes him through an Israeli checkpoint. IDF officer Assi soon discovers Salam’s connection to the show—and his own wife’s obsession with it—so he uses his power to become Salam’s secret writing partner. With both men now invested in the soap’s narrative arc, Salam has to concoct plot twists to suit viewers on both sides.
Sunday, November 10: Dropoff at Skylark Diner (17 Wooding Ave, Edison) at 5:00 pm. Pickup at AMC New Brunswick (17 US-1, New Brunswick) at 8:45 pm.
Please RSVP to Rob Pestka to allow us time to obtain film festival tickets before they sell out.
