Ajami

 A powerful crime drama set on the streets of Jaffa's Ajami neighborhood - a melting pot of cultures and conflicting views among Jews, Muslims and Christians.

Told through the eyes of a cross-section of the city's inhabitants: a young Israeli (Shahir Kabaha) fighting a criminal vendetta against his family, a Palestinian refugee (Ibrahim Frege) working illegally to finance a life-saving surgery, a Jewish police detective (Eran Naim) obsessed with finding his missing brother, and an affluent Palestinian (Scandar Copti) dreaming of a future with his Jewish girlfriend.

As their stories intersect - and the film's narrative shifts back and forth in time - we witness a dramatic collision of different worlds and the tragic consequences of enemies living as neighbors.

Ajami won a special distinction award at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
