TEL AVIV ON FIRE

MON. JAN 27, 2020 at GALAXY .    1,  4, 6:30 & 9 pm,

Salam, a Palestinian living in Jerusalem, works on a popular soap opera that viewers on both sides enjoy. While being interrogated at the checkpoint he must cross everyday his integrity is compromised when the commander at the check point wants his Israeli ideas incorporated in the show.  Thoughtful and well-acted, Tel Aviv on Fire has a deadpan audacity. Laughter won't bring peace in the Middle East but it brings a humanity to the players.
