An Unusual Summer

Official Section

In an effort to discover who it is that keeps breaking the window of his car, Kamal Aljafari’s father installed a surveillance camera in order to catch the culprit red-handed. Despite the poor quality of the CCTV images, one can identify people passing by in front of the house day and night. Some of them get close to the car, others pass by without paying attention to it. All of them are potential suspects of that annoying crime. With the passing of the days one sees how the inhabitants of the neighbourhood live and move: a mosaic full of humour and irony, but also of violence in a conflictive neighbourhood, the Palestinian ghetto of Ramla, a hot spot in the conflict with Israel.
