In this short film Ihab Jaddallah evokes, not without a certain humor, the struggle and the resistance of the Palestinians in these times of trouble and chaos through a whimsical self-reference. He thus also denounces the satiric attitude of a journalist, the comportment of the media, spectators and greed for violence. Critical of the instrumentalisation of the war and at the same time manifesting a new generation of Palestinian artists, THE SHOOTER is a meta-film: intelligent, sharp-sighted and skillful. (Paris Cinema)
Content Palestine is occupied by the international media. It is being staged by the international media for sensational newscasts and Palestinians have become "performers" of dramatic international evening newscasts. The Shooter questions the Palestinian resistance struggle and its decadence, reaching the point of the actual chaos and lack of control.
