What do you get when an Arab Christan and an Isreali Jew get together to write and direct a film? You get Ajami. A generous portrayal of a world we don’t know about. It’s important to watch because we get a glimpse of the complexity that exists beyond the labels and headlines we read from the news. Yet, it’s not just about Jewish/Arab/Christian relations. It’s about the human vulnerability of trust and our attempts to gain control in a chaotic world. I understand there are people who don’t enjoy sub-titles or non-linear stories. Get over it. It’s not often you’re let into a story ¬†from a non-Western perspective that displays such tragedy and beauty.
