Looking Awry

Looking Awry (Chawal)



A Palestinian filmmaker is commissioned by an American organization to make a documentary film, which is to depict Jerusalem as a city of peace and coexistence between Jews and Arabs. But and while making the film, the filmmaker keeps running into situations that are very different from what he is trying to depict. The reality of things on the ground, proves to be much stronger than its representation.
