Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?

Wrestling Jerusalem
Writer/actor Aaron Davidman takes us on a whirlwind journey that presents competing narratives of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. He gracefully embodies 17 characters, moving deftly from male to female, Palestinian to Israeli, American to European. Davidman’s ability to empathize makes him an excellent tour guide. Masterfully shot backstage during a live performance, and in the desert, the film conjures cafes, buses and settlements as well as the deeply human stories they contain. —Stephanie Rapp

The Writer
Critically acclaimed Israeli Arab writer Sayed Kashua (hit TV series Arab Labor, SFJFF 2008–13), delivers a masterfully nuanced dramatic series about Kateb, a 40-year-old Israel Arab writer, who, like Amjad, the protagonist of Arab Labor, is living in Israel and struggling with an identity crisis. Kateb (like Kashua in real life) faces the challenge of growing creatively in Israeli society, which sometimes has preconceived notions about even its most talented Palestinian writer. —Nancy K.
