The film, Targeted Citizen (15 minutes), written, directed, produced and edited by filmmaker Rachel Leah Jones for Adalah, surveys discrimination against Palestinian citizens in Israel. With the participation of experts Dr. Yousef Jabareen of the Technion and Dr. Khaled Abu Asbeh of the Van Leer Institute, as well as Adalah Attorneys Sawsan Zaher, Abeer Baker and Hassan Jabareen inequality in land and housing, employment, education and civil and political rights are eloquently addressed. These interviews are reinforced by the contrasting informality of on-the-street conversations conducted by Palestinian comic duo Shammas-Nahas and punctuated by the hard-hitting rhymes of Palestinian rap trio DAM. DAMs song Targeted Citizen, was written and recorded especially for Adalah and the film, tells it like it is without missing a beat.
