8th INTERFILM Award for Promoting Interreligious Dialogue, Venice, 2018

This provocative, playful, and explosive comedy offers an unexpected view into one of the world’s most painful conflicts. A Palestinian writer draws upon the skills and experiences of an Israeli checkpoint commander to enhance a TV-Series: Tel Aviv on Fire. The film confronts the uneasy boundary between harsh reality and romantic illusions, transforming identities, opening imaginative space for dialogue.
