Ford Transit


Rajai, a Palestinian “service” taxi driver ferries his passengers between East Jerusalem and Ramallah for 3 shekels a ride. En route, he either gives you insight into the daily challenges faced by Palestinians under Israeli occupation, or he drives you crazy. Or both. His take on the Intifada, suicide bombings and life in general is mirrored in his passengers—which include prominent Palestinian political and cultural figures, and more than one delightful cameo appearance in this blurry document of fact and fiction.

    A must-see.
  • Hollywood Bitchslap
    Superlative filmmaking.
  • OffOffOff
    The bright, charismatic Rajai as the Han Solo of the West Bank, is worth the price of admission by himself.
  • Ozus
    Stimulating and unique documentary.
