Program Note

Ziad is a young Palestinian man living in a conflict zone between Israel and Palestine. When his best friend Ramzi gets shot in the head by an Israeli sniper, his rage translates into a rash action where he kills an innocent man. After 15 years of imprisonment, Ziad struggles to adjust to modern life, suffering from PTSD. Screwdriver follows how this tragic man haunted by ghosts of the past attempts to find meaning in life after being imprisoned for choosing honor and friendship over many other things. It is worth paying attention to the film’s unique directing style and the outstanding performance by a charismatic actor Ziad Bakri who plays the role of Ziad.
