Filmmaker @ AREA 5.
Boy this film made me feel like an ignorant American with no idea what’s going on elsewhere on the globe.
I started flat-out bawling when the titular mayor, Musa Hadid, breaks the fourth wall and asks the filmmaker, “David, do you think people in America know what’s going on here?”
This should be required viewing for people in this country.
And side-note: as a documentary filmmaker, I have yet to make a film with zero A-roll interview footage. Films like this remind me that this is a goal of mine. Spectacular filmmaking.
