Presented in the Panorama section of the 66th Berlin International Film Festival, Junction 48 stars real life rapper Tamer Nafar, who wrote the screenplay inspired by his own personal experiences as part of the Arab hip-hop scene in Tel Aviv. This is a story of love and struggles, and it speaks to young people with the hope of making a change.

JUNCTION 48 is the love story of two young Palestinian hip-hop artists who use their music to fight against both the external oppression of Israeli society and the internal repression of their own crime-ridden, conservative community. It depicts a new generation of young Arabs who seek normality through their love and music – and against all odds.
