Israel Media Series presents episodes 1-3 of The Writer, the most recent series from Sayed Kashua of Arab Labor and Borrowed Identity fame. Kateb, a stand-in for Kashua himself, is the popular but conflicted screenwriter for a series called Arab Labor. Kateb questions the value of his comedic depiction of Arab Israeli life in that show and wonders about the nature of his popularity with the Jewish audience. This leads him to bring a new series to the screen – one that explores some of his own inner dilemmas. As always, $5 covers admission and our famous refreshments.
