About Junction 48

Year Released:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, artist Tamer Nafar has cancelled his visit to IU Cinema.

Director Udi Aloni is now scheduled to be present.  

Set against a backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Palestinian rapper Kareem and his singer girlfriend Manar struggle, love, and make music in their crime-ridden ghetto and Tel Aviv’s hip-hop club scene. Their efforts to stop the demolition of a friend’s family home reveal the difficulties Palestinian-Israelis face, living as an ethnic and religious minority in the state of Israel. Caught at the junction of competing worlds, Kareem transforms himself through hip-hop. In Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
