Mayor is a real-life political saga about a search for identity behind the battle lines of a global conflict. With startling and unprecedented access, MAYOR follows a charismatic leader’s quixotic quest to build the city of the future in a land paralyzed by its past.



“THE BEST NEW FILM ABOUT THE ISRAEL-PALESTINIAN CONFLICT is a dark comedy about Ramallah’s Mayor... offers a striking new perspective on that struggle, with a personal on-the-ground quality matched by grand tonal ambitions that makes it the best of its subgenre."


"EXTRAORDINARY. Infuriating and heartbreaking. [Mayor is] about the power of storytelling, for better or worse."
