Ticket to Jerusalem


Time Out says

Jaber is a one-man movie operation. A roving projectionist with his own stock of films, he drives round Palestine in his jeep putting on screenings for the kids. When a teacher invites him to the old city of Jerusalem, everyone tells him he's crazy - Arabs in this part of Israel have more serious problems than cinema. But Jaber is determined. This DV feature has neo-realist elements, but in the end its slight scenario and evidently restricted means tend to back the naysayers. Cinephilia seems trivial in the circumstances.
