Opening Night Film: Ajami
Director: Scander Copti | Yaron Shani
Country: Germany | Israel | 2009 | Feature
Duration: 120 min.
Language: Arabic | Hebrew with English subtitles
A gritty, urban crime drama brimming with raw energy and razor sharp insights, Ajami tells the interwoven stories of Jewish, Muslim and Christian neighbors often living in violence and disharmony in an impoverished Jaffa, Israel neighborhood. The sweeping cast of characters--illegal workers, gangs, drug dealers, revenge squads, corrupt police and clandestine inter-religious lovers--are all vividly portrayed by non-professional actors who are actual Ajami residents. Their disparate stories are tied together by a revenge killing and drug deal gone bad. Shuttling back and forth through time, interlocking events are witnessed through the eyes of different characters, thus changing audience perceptions and responses. The film is co-directed by Israeli and Palestinian filmmakers, Yaron Shani and Scandar Copti (who acts in the film as well). Adult themes and content.
-Ajami is a 2010 Oscar nominee for the Best Foreign Language Film. This is the first Arabic-language film to represent the Jewish state at the Academy Awards.
