Filmmaker David Osit's entertaining, insightful and often surprisingly funny 2020 documentary "Mayor" follows Musa Hadid, mayor of Ramallah, the de facto capital of the Palestinian National Authority, as he tries to keep the city running despite Israeli occupation of his home. Hadid, whom Osit followed over the course of two years, emerges as an immensely likable, hands-on public servant, who relishes his direct connection with Ramallah and its people, whether he's coping with a sewage spill or berating a bus driver for exceeding the speed limit.
