Citizen Nawi | Nissim Mossek | 2007 | 80 min | Documentary | Israel
Director Nissim Mossek dives headfirst into the life and work of Ezra Nawi, a Sephardic plumber and political activist living in Jerusalem. This touchingly personal documentary follows Ezra as he runs interference for a village of Palestinian farmers in the hills of South Hebron. The film also explores Ezra’s complicated and loving relationship with Fuad Mussa, a young Palestinian man that he shelters illegally in his home. In the raw and gritty tradition of the social documentary, Citizen Nawi delivers hope through an intimate portrait of one man’s fight for social justice. Winner: Special Jury Prize, Jerusalem Film Festival, 2007
