Rivertown Film Presents AJAMI

On Wednesday, Rivertown Film presents a powerful crime drama set in a rundown multiethnic neighborhood of Jaffa whose inhabitants try’€”and mostly fail’€”to live together without hatred. Told by interweaving the stories of five main characters, AJAMI portrays the tragedy of social divides, not only between Arab and Jew but also Christians and Muslims, rich and poor, farmers and city dwellers, men and women, young and old. Co-written and -directed by an Israeli Arab and an Israeli Jew, whose goal was ‘€œto make the audience experience what it means to be the other.’€

AJAMI, the 2009 Oscar Nominee for Best Foreign Film, will be shown at the Nyack Center on Wednesday, July 7  at 7:30 PM.

Directed by Scandar Copti and Yaron Shani
Israel (2009) 120 minutes, in Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles
‘€œEmotionally mesmerizing. Grade A’€ ‘€“ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
