West Bank Story

In Beirut over the weekend, I was introduced to the wonderful West Bank Story, a short film that I've just discovered won an Oscar in 2007. It's an all singing, all dancing musical take-off of West Side Story (obviously), set on the border of Israel and the West Bank. The Jets and the Sharks have been replaced by fast food outlets the Hommus Hut, and Kosher King. I'm not sure where you can find the whole thing, but check out the trailer for a taste...

  1. Stange! last Thur. sick of Norah Jones, I chose Westside story to spur me on to clean up after the dust storm, or was it that it was first to hand from my extensive collection?!
