A Number Zero (Ala Sefer)



The filmmaker returns to his hometown of Bethlehem during the Israeli army invasion of the city in April 2001. He goes to a barber to cut his hair and finds that the barbershop represents a microcosm of the community that comes to the shop in order to seek refuge from the warring world outside. The shop’s regular patrons strive for a measure of normalcy in their conversations and the enactment of their usual rhythms of life.
