Rock the Casbah
Set in the Gaza Strip circa 1989, at the height of the first Intifada, war-is-hell drama "Rock the Casbah" illustrates the futility of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
- Alissa Simon, Variety
A very personal film that takes on big themes almost incidentally, Rock The Casbah is remarkable for the balance it strikes between Israeli and Arab perspectives, often deriving sly humour from the otherwise tragic culture clash. It's thoughtful in its representation of thoughtlessness, and curiously poetic. Well worth seeking out.
