The Passerby

Kamal Al Jafari

Project Logline:

On a nightly walk two friends are approached by a strange woman, asking for the way to Tel Aviv. The encounter prompts a rupture in their world. The film explores the waking-nightmare of a Palestinian living as an unwanted, perpetually suspect individual in lsrael, 65 years after its creation.
