Both navigate endless checkpoints and other obstacles by looking for creative solutions. When Jabir is invited by a spirited schoolteacher to make an open-air screening in the old city of Jerusalem, he becomes obsessed with the idea of this pilgrimage and begins to investigate the possibilities. [Ticket to Jerusalem] defends the honor and necessity of movie going in times of political emergency Mr. Masharawis film seems aware, in it's quiet, sad resilience, that it's very existence is something of an achievement. -New York Times Rashid Masharawis warm yet clear-eyed film largely sidesteps sentiment in favor of a tentative hopefulness. -Village Voice Ticket to Jerusalem is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative.
