Synopsis

David Osit’s richly detailed documentary follows Musa Hadid, the charismatic Christian mayor of Ramallah, the de facto capital of Palestine.

Hadid seeks to improve the day-to-day lives of his constituents while navigating the political turmoil of running a city surrounded on all sides by Israeli settlements. His concerns range from the micro to the macro: discussing with his team what their campaign hashtag should be; the logistics of dressing and unveiling the city’s Christmas tree; ultimately hoping to end the occupation...

Punctuated with moments of dark humour, Osit's film provides insight into the realities of life in contemporary Palestine.

'The Best New Film About Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Is a Dark Comedy About Ramallah’s Mayor' - IndieWire

'Mayor is less a portrait of the man than of the position' - The Hollywood Reporter
