The film "Targeted Citizen" (15 minutes), produced by filmmaker Rachel Leah Jones for Adalah: The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, surveys discrimination against Palestinian citizens. With the participation of various experts, inequality in land and housing, employment, education and civil and political rights are eloquently addressed. These interviews are bolstered by the contrasting on-the-street conversations conducted by Palestinian comic duo Shammas-Nahas and punctuated by the hard-hitting rhymes of Palestinian rap trio DAM. The film's theme song: “Targeted Citizen,” written and recorded by DAM especially for the film, tells it like it is without missing a beat.
