Image from the film Junction 48.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, artist Tamer Nafar has cancelled his visit to IU Cinema.

Director Udi Aloni is now scheduled to be present.


Set against a backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Palestinian rapper Kareem and his singer girlfriend Manar struggle, love, and make music in their crime-ridden ghetto and Tel Aviv’s hip-hop club scene. Their efforts to stop the demolition of a friend’s family home reveal the difficulties Palestinian-Israelis face, living as an ethnic and religious minority in the state of Israel. Caught at the junction of competing worlds, Kareem transforms himself through hip-hop. In Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)

This film is sponsored by Center for the Study of the Middle East; the departments of Folklore and Ethnomusicology and Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance; Islamic Studies Program; and IU Cinema. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
