Movie Info

Kareem (Tamer Nafar) leads an aimless life between odd jobs and hanging out with his buddies in a crime-ridden Arab ghetto of the mixed city of Lyd. But a family tragedy brings him closer to his singer girlfriend Manar (Samar Qupty) and motivates him to do something more with his life. When Kareem and his group finally get a chance to perform in a Tel Aviv hip-hop club, the star potential of the first Arab rapper is quickly noticed.

  • "Junction 48" is something worth checking out - particularly if you are a fan of Arabic hip-hop, which, now that I've seen this movie, I guess I am.

  • Does for the Israeli city of Lod what "8 Mile" aimed to do for the suburbs of Detroit.

  • An immersive fictionalized portrait of an aspiring rapper struggling to find his voice amid the constant din of long-festering Arab-Israeli tensions.

    March 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • While the fuzzy take-home message of peaceful coexistence is something most viewers can get behind, it is also too simplistic and banal to sustain an entire movie.

    February 28, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Issues are overly simplified and scenes are often poorly constructed (not helped by uneven editing), though Nafar is a charismatic performer.

    February 28, 2017 | Full Review…
  • At its best, the film demonstrates that no art is more political than that which depicts the lived experience of the oppressed with accuracy, empathy, and moral clarity.
