My Name Is Ahmed

Made by Ram Loevy and Avshalom Katz, this influential and moving film was the first time Israeli cinema centered on the plight of an Arab protagonist. The filmmakers follow an Arab manual laborer who heads to Tel Aviv for work, and reflect on his struggles and alienation in the city. A poetic and vital document from pre-1967 Israel. (Source)
