Mayor is a real-life political saga following Musa Hadid, the Christian mayor of Ramallah in Palestine. His immediate goals: repave the sidewalks, attract more tourism, and plan the city’s Christmas celebrations. His ultimate mission: to end the occupation of Palestine.

Our take

This observational portrait of the witty, dedicated mayor of Ramallah in the West Bank doubles as an enthralling depiction of local governance amid complex geopolitics. Infused with dark humour and compelling vigour, it’s up there with the best documentaries about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
