2020 · d. David Osit
Starring Musa Hadid
Rental: $12.00 (48 hour streaming period)


As the mayor of the Palestinian city of Ramallah, in the West Bank, Musa Hadid’s duties range from the mundane (plan the local Christmas celebration) to the formidable (foster the city’s development amid the Israeli/Palestinian conflict). Illuminating, humanistic, and surprisingly funny, Mayor relates a story of civics in a city like no other.
