NAMRUD – TROUBLEMAKER
Fernando Romero-Forsthuber | Palestine, Austria 2017 | 94 Min. | OmeU
Jowan Safadi, born in the Palestinian state in Israel, is a famous musician with a huge fan base in the Arab world. Jowan is unafraid to tackle taboo subjects, which also courted controversy on several occasions: Previously investigated by the Israeli police for “inciting terrorism”, his last tour to Jordan ended with his arrest.
However, his 15-year-old son, Don, moved to his home shortly. Now, Jowan has to face a new challenge: reconcile his paternal responsibility with his fight for his ideals, and furthermore, making trouble.
