The life of young Rajai, a Palestinian taxi-van driver who struggles on a daily basis to get passed roadblocks and barriers, over detours and shortcuts from East Jerusalem to Ramallah and back again transporting passengers for three shekels a trip. His point of view on the Intifadah, the occupation, suicide attacks and life in general is mirrored by that of his passengers, ordinary people but also by politicians and other prominent Palestinians. A humorous look into the day-to-day lives of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation as it is seen, lived and witnessed through the windows, and on the seats of a Ford Transit (the main public transportation in the occupied West Bank). An entertaining film about a people enduring occupation for more than 30 years - introducing the out of the ordinary point of view of the ordinary people. Mixing fiction with documentary, the film melds music, humour and anger into a high-spirited critique of an infamous crisis

al-Nāṣirah 2000 = Nazareth 2000 (verhaal) = Nazareth 2000( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Arabic and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Returning to his native city just months before the new millennium, filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad captures the daily, idiosyncratic beats of Nazareth, a city both Christian and Muslim consider one of the most sacred in the world. Today, 72 percent of the inhabitants are Muslim, but most of the land is owned by Christian institutions, a situation that causes great tension. Set against the background of the riots surrounding a square that both Christians and Muslims lay claim to, Abu-Assad allows ... "Nazareth 2000" to unfold through the eyes of two cynical, funny, and wise gas station attendants who have been working at the service station for decades. Their comments on the political and social conditions of their city paint both a tragic and subtle image of its inhabitants."--Container

Die Palästinenser Khaled und Said sind seit ihrer Kindheit gute Freunde. Jetzt wurden Sie ausgewählt, sich als Selbstmordattentätter in Tel Aviv in die Luft zu sprengen. Die voraussichtlich letzte Nacht ihres Lebenes dürfen die beiden noch einmal im Kreise der Familie verbringen. Da ihr Vorhaben aber selbstverständlich streng geheim bleiben muss, bleibt ihnen ein wirklicher Abschied von ihren Lieben verwehrt. Schon am nächten Morgen werden sie an die Grenze gebracht. Die Bohmben sind unsichtbar am ihren Körpern befestigt. Doch dann verläuft die Operation nicht wie geplant. Ein Film zum Nachdenken. Kontrovers diskutiert!
