Review: Mayor

2020 has been a great year for documentary. Maybe pandemic viewing has made it so, but many of my faves this year are of the non-fiction genre. Mayor is now added to that list. Shot over a few months in 2017, it’s an eye-opening look at the Palestinian city of Ramallah in the West Bank through the eyes of its Christian mayor Musa Hadid. He’s charismatic and funny and deeply committed to ending the occupation and letting his people live with respect. He also wants to have a town square to rival Vegas.
