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.
