NORDIC PREMIERE
Palestine / 2015 / Arabic, English and Hebrew dialogue with English subtitles / 93 minutes

Mousa gets into the trouble of his life when he steals the wrong car. What he thought was an Israeli car and an easy way to make money in his impoverished Palestinian refugee camp turns out to be a load of misfortune when he discovers a kidnapped Israeli soldier in the trunk. Mousa’s hopes of paying the bribe that will guarantee him an exit visa out of the country and away from his wrecked love affair dissipate as he finds himself on the run from Palestinian militias and the Israeli intelligence. The film is a dramatic black comedy and a Palestinian homage to the French New Wave
